David Monroe's Bio


"It's about Imagery"

David has been a photographer for almost 40 years. Until now, his fine art was held in private collections or museums.  His style invites the viewer on a journey of revelation and intent.

David says, "I am an imagist, not a photographer.  I don't take photographs, I create imagery"!

I have a unique perspective on the world from years of exercising not only my eye for lighting, composition and balance, but by slowing down and listening to how my spirit directs me to create art with intent that reflects to the viewer.

David's love of the craft of photography began when he was 12, it afforded him the ability to capture the world and share it as he saw it. His fascination with the tools he had at his disposal led David deep into the nuts and bolts of photography; he built his own large and medium format cameras, created "dark rooms" in the wild, and developed a system of understanding exposure that still serves him well today.

The advent of digital photography opened a new world to David.  He began shooting with a digital medium format camera along with his other digital equipment.  He built his own unique camera system that allows him to take round images.  Rather than editing images into a round mask, many of David's images are shot in the round.

David's commitment to the art of photography and his dedication to his own spiritual growth help to capture the viewer's imagination in a unique way, pulling them into these portals of intent.

I know the importance that a deep connection to the divine plays in the creation of a piece of art.
