Street photographer David Gibson will speak about his work at the next meeting of the Shoreditch Satellite Group..

Thu 4th June at Theprintspace, 74 Kingsland Road E2 8DL
6.30pm-8.30pm

David was born in Ilford, Essex in 1957. He worked for several years as a Residential Social Worker before pursuing photography full-time in 1994. In 2002 he completed an MA in Photography: History and Culture at the London College of Printing. David is often commissioned by design agencies in London and his photographs are held in several prominent stock libraries and private collections. He is a member of in-Public, a collective of photographers showing work at “the on-line home of street photography”.

David says:
“I probably spend more time looking at photographs than I do actually taking them. My shelves at home are lined with photography books. The work of the so-called master photographers – and the less heralded – have always been a source of reassurance and stimulation for my own photography.”

“Photographers such as Elliott Erwitt, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mario Giacomelli, Robert Frank, Sylvia Plachy and Tony Ray-Jones, to name but a few. The list is endless and always open to change.”

“Street photography for me is an instinctive urge. After more than 15 years of wandering with my camera, it still remains about staying curious and just looking for the luck.”

As David is not exclusively a street photographer but keeps going off to other, more abstract directions as well, we should be in for a treat of an evening!

Please note that seating (of the chair kind) at this event is limited. In order for us to allow more people to attend, standing or sitting on the floor is encouraged!
