DAVID BRODSKY is internationally known graphic designer and photographer. Born in Kiev, Ukraine, David graduated from the Kiev Institute of Decorative and Applied Arts and Design in 1974. He started his professional journey in the field of Graphic Design, working as a Graphic Designer and a Creative Director in the Soviet Union, Italy and the United States.
David’s passion for photography developed into a full obsession about two decades ago. He doesn’t intend to document, to record, or to show what is: He is more interested in conveying his personal vision of the world, his personal take on it. It is more about visual stories – not at first obvious, but filled with enough emotion or mystery to elevate them above the ordinary. The images in David’s photos are sometimes contemplative and sometimes funny, while at other times carrying an uncanny mood and striking poeticism.
Ansel Adams said once: “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” This is what drives David’s work – a lifetime of experiences that allows him to capture telling moments that shed light on truth, emotion and humanity.
