David Thompson sees his motifs with a film director’s eye, and that is precisely what makes him such an exciting photographer. He stages cool fashion stories with a complex, condensed atmosphere and presents both fashion and bodies in an almost sculptural way, without however making them seem artificial. Through this approach, even apparently serene motifs achieve a mysterious, sensual quality.
David Thompson grew up with a camera in his hand as his father was a keen amateur photographer, and many childhood days and nights were spent experimenting in the family garage darkroom.
Since graduating from art school, Thompson has worked as a professional photographer, and worked for many clients and his work was also featured across various publications including international editions of Vogue and The New York Times Magazine.
