(1968) Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada, David Burdeny has degrees in both Interior design and a Masters in Architecture. At the age of 12, David started to photograph the prairie landscape and make his own black and white prints in a makeshift darkroom that also served as his bedroom closet. Primarily self taught,
his architecture and design background greatly influences his penchant for simple exacting photographs of sky, horizon and the marks humankind leaves behind. Influenced stylistically by photographers before him, such as Michael Kenna and Hiroshi Sugimoto, David purposefully photographs in poor light and near darkness.
He uses unusually long exposures to see that which our eyes can not. Moving beyond the literal, his images have been described as ominous, haunting, beautiful and meditative.
In addition to working as an artist, David is owned by two dogs and practices architecture design Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. His images have been shown across Canada and the USA and are featured in several prominent corporate collections such as Sprint and many private collections across the USA, Canada, Asia and Europe.
