As culmination of a fifteen-month San Francisco Arts Commission Individual Artist’s Grant, the RayKo Photo Center will exhibit The After Life of Things: Discarded, Collected, Assembled from December 8, 2016 to January 13, 2017.

The exhibition showcases new work from David’s continuing project made possible by the highly sought-after, bi-annual
Arts Commission grant. The more than twenty pieces in the show are both images of objects and objects themselves, including abstract cameraless images as well as a variety of mural-size assemblages as large as 47″ x 74,” all made by hand
in the darkroom on expired color paper.

The After Life of Things explores the materiality of things and the nature of photographic materials, while celebrating the wonder of the traditional darkroom in an age of its demise.
