Aperture’s Executive Director, Chris Boot, has selected David’s piece Blue Christmas, No. 1 to be included in Summer Open, the first exhibition of its kind organized by Aperture Foundation.
Designed to reflect “the state of photography now,” an open call for work resulted in 860 submissions from which 97 artists were chosen, representing the theme of “photography itself.”
Aperture Summer Open is on view from July 17 to August 14, 2014.
Blue Christmas No.1 is part of David’s ongoing project, The After Life of Things, which explores the unique qualities of expired photo papers to investigate the materiality of things and the nature of photographic materials.
While an artist-in-residence at RayKo Photo Center in San Francisco, David began the first phase of this project by drawing a parallel between discarded objects and discontinued photo papers as found objects. Blue Christmas No. 1 is made from fifteen unique 5 x 7 prints, printed in the traditional color darkroom on paper dating from the 1980’s to ‘90’s.

Open to Interpretation
David’s image Angel Trumpet and Morning Glory has been published in Intimate Landscape, the second volume of Open to Interpretation, a new series of elegant books pairing fine photography with creative writing to explore how pictures, poetry and prose can inspire a multiplicity of interpretations from a single source.
Conceived by photographer and publisher Clare O’Neill as a two-part international competition, the images for each volume are first selected by an invited juror based on a specific theme. A second juried process then takes place to select writers whose submissions respond to the individual chosen images.
The result is an engaging, elegant book that invites readers to enjoy the featured photographs, writings and their own imagination.
Juror Karen Irvine, Curator and Associate Director of the Museum of Contemporary Photography at Columbia College Chicago, selected Angel Trumpet and Morning Glory to be included in the book with 29 other photographs from 1500 submissions.
