Born and raised in Los Angeles, David Glen Larson's love affair with photography began when he received a Kodak Ektralite camera for his 10th birthday. He spent much of his teen years in the studio, dark room, and classroom, where he worked as a teaching assistant for beginning and advanced photography classes.
He went on to study directing and screenwriting at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts, and afterward had some success writing for film and television, becoming an active member of the Writer's Guild of America. But the power of the still image and the challenge of telling stories through the language of light ultimately drew David's heart away from Hollywood, and so he returned his focus to portraiture and fine art photography full time.
Much of his work deals with identity, blurring the line between individuality and commonality, exploring the intersection of self and other. Often that includes transforming the subject in some way, using techniques of abstraction or obfuscation to alter or hide key features to see at what point the original subject is no longer identifiable, or to create entirely new, fictitious subjects.
David has received honorable mentions in the 2017 International Photographer of the Year Competition and the 2017 Chromatic Awards, and in 2018 his work has been included in exhibitions across the world.
