Photographer David Kitz's powerful still-lifes and digitally collaged photographs have been featured in GQ, Cool Hunting, Installation Mag and more. In his recent series, FOOD, TOOLS, Kitz removes both objects from their typical context and creates a new context by staging them together in a type of choreography.
“I love making pictures in my mind when I don’t have a camera with me, and I love using one when I do.”

About David Kitz
David Kitz’s work investigates the representational parameters and material qualities of the medium of photography. Hyper aware of the impact that a limited frame creates in relaying the appearance of a subject, Kitz acknowledges the indexical shortcomings of all photographs. Exploiting the way the camera records three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional plane, he explores the ways in which his subjects respond to conflation. His interest in flatness and the idea of the photograph as a veneer has made texture, and the illusion of texture, a major focus of his work.
David Kitz (born 1987, Los Angeles) received his BA in Fine Art from UCLA in 2011. He currently lives and works in Los Angeles, CA.
