To all David's friends on Deviant Art, I am very sad to tell you that David collapsed and died of a major heart attack this week despite huge efforts by paramedics to save him. This was not connected to his sciatica but he had been in very bad pain

Recently I have suffered a major recurrence of the sciatica that has plagued me for the last six weeks. I have been bed bound for the last week. Consequently, I have not been able to answer comments on my latest work nor reply to Faves. Regretably, t...

 Anybody who has followed my journals and photography will know that I am very keen on contrasts in photography, particularly those known as Itten contrasts. A quote from one of previous journals Contrasts of a Curious Mind #1 gives a summary: "...some considerable time ago, a Swiss expressionist painter called Johanes Itten en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes… introduced to his students at the Bauhaus en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bauhaus the idea of another type of contrast - contrast between characteristics and properties of objects, such as rough and smooth, narrow and wide, horizontal and vertical, curved and linear - was just as important in

Dear David, I am sending you nice thoughts, where ever you are!!

:heart::blackrose:

I wonder how is your dear wife and cats. I know how you cared them, your life...

It's been awhile since I touched base with you, and I can't believe what I've found. We had lots of conversations and you encouraged me so long ago. since then I've travelled all of America, then took off to Europe, where I've been travelling and now live. Still shooting, of course. I'll miss you my friend.


Thank you for everything, and for all the kind words over the years. Rest in peace, David.

I miss you my friend David 💕

I can't believe how often I'm still reminded of you, David.


So often I'm reminded of your words, photography style and compositions. Even now, you inspire me to be a better photographer.

I hope you enjoy seeing your friends here grow and develop, picking up on the remarkable things you taught us.


Miss you :heart:

Very atmospheric photos. R.I.P.
