Flowing Gold

Artist’s Statement

My photographs are character studies of botanicals and water that offer viewers a healing respite from the angst of the past or worry about the future. They are uplifted “in the moment,” touched by nature’s beauty and wonder through the images.




David discovered his serious interest in photography over 40 years ago in the world of 35mm black-and-white with a home darkroom for several years. Many of those 40+ years, however, were focused on his family and his careers in not-for-profit agencies and higher education.

His passion for nature photography reemerged in 2003 when advances in digital technology finally allowed him to pursue his artistic interests without a darkroom. David began exhibiting and selling his work in 2006, while living in western Massachusetts. His first solo exhibit after moving to metro Atlanta was at the Decatur Library in 2008. Since then, his images have been part of more than three dozen solo, juried and group exhibitions in the Southeast. His image “Jekyll Island Dawn” is part of the Picturing Georgia exhibit at the Atlanta Airport International Terminal. His image “Poppy” was selected for the 2012 Gardens in Focus exhibit at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Sydney, Australia; “Dragonfly” was also selected in 2013.

His images have earned a number of awards from the Georgia Nature Photographers Association, the Southeastern Flower Show, and Nature Undisturbed. He was the Artist in Residence at Cheraw State Park (SC) in 2011.

David and his wife, Jenny, have two grown sons and live in Decatur, Georgia.
