Archival pigment print | 2018

This new collection by the artist David Kitz is a compilation of more than one approach to picture making. A series of found and arranged moments, this mix puts pressure on the idea of effort and authorship. By mixing staged pictures with casual snapshots, David Kitz illustrates the contingency of a photograph’s meaning.

Kitz's 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


“I have found myself being drawn to very simple photographs. This man reading a newspaper was photographed by Danny Lane. He used a film camera which I think produces the most authentic and true images. Nothing staged, nothing over the top. I absolutely love a photograph of simply nothing, just life in general, the mundane and intimate hours of the day.”
