ARtist Statement

Whether focused on ordinary spaces or iconic settings , David Burdeny’s photographs occupy an artistic middle ground between the physical and the atmospheric , the concrete and the spiritual, the actual and the idealized . They represent not only what he has found, but his personal experience in these enigmatic and luminous locations . He writes , “The raw immediacy and lived experience of taking a photograph matters as much to me as how I compose the frame. It is my private personal connection to these places and the emotional or intellectual intrigue that grips me through the process that I hope resonates in the print. I seek to capture the mood and promise , silence and solitude in that extended moment of awareness.”
