Major Projects:
  • Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Photography
  • His most recent book MANDELA: IN TIMES OF STRUGGLE AND TRIUMPH bares witness to a pivotal moment in the country’s history and the life of the heroic leader Nelson Mandela since his release from prison in 1991.
  • David has continued to push his professional boundaries, adding documentary filmmaking and commercial directing to his diverse repertoire. His film “La Tropical” is considered highly provocative and perhaps the most sensual film to have been shot in Cuba. David is currently directing a film set in a coal mining town called Shenandoah, PA.
