DAVID DEGELIN

"Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.”

Photography is my way of dealing with the world, people, stories, places, experiences. Essentially it is about feelings, emotions, and expression.

Graduated as a master in archaeology, and having followed the post-graduate program of social and cultural anthropology my focus is centered on people.

All you need is light

feel what I photograph rather than what I actually see, and feelings, shadow, and light are my guiding principles. To me, photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. You can look at a picture for a week and never think about it again. You can also look at a photo for a second and think about it all your life. Photography gives you the opportunity to use everything you are to tell your story.

My photographic work focuses on street, portrait, fashion, documentary and fine art photography

'David is concentrating on making layered compositions with excellent use of the frame and the needed poetry and attention to details which enhance the narrative. I feel a loneliness when I look at the work but I also feel an unexplainable sense of warmth.'
