Photography Art-David D. Livingston

Photography Art-David D. Livingston

David D. Livingston is a photographer of both interiors and art.  It’s the art that particularly draws me and which I’ve used in a couple of projects as a source of serenity and peaceful beauty to quiet a room.  His use of the camera is like that of an abstract painter, blurring the lines of reality, while still keeping the essence.  Filled with movement, they still feel like a meditation.  Plus, I love the color in his work.

David Duncan Livingston’s photographic abstractions of natural and urban landscapes examine the purity and beauty of nature as well as the complexity of the built environment. He records glimpses of light, shape, and color, as he moves through a space, observing and capturing the essence of an environment. His contemplative photographs traverse through rich layers of space and meaning.

When Livingston’s images are seen in mural size, they evoke an emotional response, examining a sense of memory and connection to a place. David draws influence from Abstract Expressionist painters such as Mark Rothko.  Livingston conveys a sense of spontaneity in his shooting style and his large photographs are full of texture and subtleties. In exploring the abstract possibilities in the landscape, much of which was originally inspired by the land surrounding his Northern California home, he has created a body of work that examines the feeling and energy of a space and the emotional connection that one has with the world around them.

I first saw David’s work at the San Francisco Design center.  A series of water shots hung in the Conde House showroom over Japanese modern styled furniture.  I was immediately drawn to the lighting of the work shown there and immediately set up an appointment to visit David in his home in the hills of Mill Valley with a client.  It was fascinating to see these large pieces of work, singly or in diptych or triptych  form with our Northern California landscape through the windows of his home.  My client too fell in love with his work and promptly bought two pieces.  Since then, he has been on my  special list when introducing clients to photography as art!

It is important to note that non of Davids work is digitally manipulated, but rather each photograph is a combination of subtle movement of the camera while directing in real time the speed and track of movement. All of David’s work is available for sale.  Editions are limited to 10 prints.  To find out more, you can visit David in his studio/home if you are local or contact him via his web site.

Photography as art, and David D. Livingston’s in particular, is definitely a Little Bit of Beauty™ in my book.  What do you think?  Do you view photography as art?  And, who’s your favorite photographer?
