David Parker was born in 1949 in Stafford, England. He originally trained as an engineer, and then as a commercial illustrator. An early interest in photography developed from a hobby into a fulltime occupation. Through his work Parker investigates contemporary landscape through the medium of large-scale black and white photography. Conceptually, the work demonstrates contemporary art’s vital ability to affirm our physical and metaphysical interactions with the world around us. His training as both an engineer and a commercial illustrator allows Parker to use custom built panoramic cameras and processing equipment.
