Additional Info // about David Black

The action, emotions and visual textures of a David Black photograph push far beyond its frame. No surprise, considering David is also an accomplished director. His collaborations with top talent—Daft Punk, Giorgio Morodor, Kim Gordon, Cat Power, Ryan Adams, Kendrick Lamar and The Kills (to name a few)—are like episodic series that celebrate his subjects through light, location and symbolic metaphor. When asked about the contents of his camera bag, David replied “Hasselblad H2, Nikon FM2, Kodak/ Rollei film, lots of smoke and mirrors.” David infuses the technical with magical thinking to create unique imagery and multi-platform campaigns for clients such as Oakley, Shinola, Ray Ban, Levi’s, Nike, Adidas, Stella McCartney, Converse, Coors, Reebok, Microsoft, Budweiser, NFL, Bloomberg, Chase, Renaissance Hotels, Google, and Smirnoff, and land his name on the notable lists of top industry organizations, including Photo District News, Print Magazine, and the Art Director’s Club.
