Dreamscapes, Les Copins, David
The Dreamscapes Series were inspired by my travels to the Mediterranean coastal towns of Spain. I found that photographing in the impressionistic style causes the viewer to see the entire image with its palette of colors, form & light creating a mood, an emotion. I want to convey to the viewer that the world we see in front of us is part of a larger reality and what appears to be clear and in focus is only our perception.
In my latest series, Dreamscapes, Les Copins, I wanted to photograph the beauty of the human form. I was inspired by Renoir and wanted to combine his influence with 21st century photography.
I began my fine art series Dreamscapes while traveling along the coastal towns of the Costa Brava in Spain. I wanted the whole image to convey an impression, to evoke an emotion. I discovered that the very same towns where I was photographing, were the same towns the Impressionist came to paint. Part color field painter, part abstractionist and part impressionist, my camera has become my paint brush. "The eye sees clearer in dreams, than the imagination awake". Leonardo da Vinci.
I studied photography at the Kunstgewerbeschule, Zurich, Switzerland. I then returned to the States and opened a successful photography
studio in San Francisco, Several years ago, I relocated my studio to Palm Beach, Florida.
