David Healey began taking pictures in 1968 during the War in Vietnam as an infantry soldier. His experiences there would shape the rest of his life as a man and as a photographer.
“I’ve always wanted to take pictures of people who no one wanted to take pictures of,” says Healey. “People kind of lost in time.” Healey’s work is largely documentary and revolves around his personal experiences.
Healey’s work has been featured in the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and Farmani Gallery. He has also worked for various agencies such as Magnum and Gamma Liaison Network.
His current project, Venice at Night, has been featured in Helen K. Garber’s GroupLA 2008 with award winning, Santa Monica based architectural/design firm, MINARC/GALLERY SKART.
