Hey I’m David -

I’m a photographer, filmmaker/editor, graphic artist, poet & sound artist. My work focuses on imagery and sound that is emotive, experimental, intimate and colorful. I use a variety of mediums including: photography, illustration, video/film, poetry, video projection, hand-cut collage, pastels, colored pencils, embroidery thread, fabric and other analog media.

My films and sound projects explore the surrealistic and dreamlike realms of experimental film. These works have been published on La Casita Grande publishing house's blog. To view one of my films and my 'audio poetry' project please visit: https://vimeo.com/gothamdreaming
