He began taking photographs in the late sixties, documenting incongruous moments with a wry sense of humor, until he established his signature style of stark graphic illustration, initiated with the seminal Rost series. His recent work has utilized the possibilities of digitalization, and this book elaborates the vision of an image-maker whose lifes work reflects, criticizes, and parallels the checkered history and changing status of photography. This stunningly designed and extensive book constitutes the first comprehensive survey of Dawids work. The publication includes fictional and factual essays by Michael Mack, considering the artists influence and context--personal, cultural, and art-historical--and exploring the psychological, philosophical and often bizarre depths of his work.
