David has a passion for clarity and precision. His aim is to capture the atmosphere of his subjects in the most natural way and thus creating an almost stage-like narrative in his photography. His pure and clear view for perspective, light and the depth of the space, combined with brilliant craftsmanship, is what makes his work outstanding and special.
