David Morgan-Davies

I use photography and film to make work about my relationship with landscape. I show and sell this work at galleries throughout the UK.

Predominantly my work (both photography and film) comes from my relationship with the landscape of the UK; often relating to locations I have personal connections with. It seeks to capture small details and fleeting moments in the vastness that surrounds us. Over the years I have moved to investigate what isn’t there, just as much as what is, and enjoy working with digital collage, pinhole photography and abstraction.
