Meet David Morel

My art is my view of the world. My subjects typically consist of very common items in very common locations. I like to present new views of the mundane world we live in. Using different photographic equipment and techniques, I attempt to craft the unique from the common. Often, my work is made with specialty lenses and finished with advanced editing techniques.

I like to express myself about topics I know a lot about..... or nothing at all. My art is a way for me to engage the viewer to do the same with what they are seeing and feeling. Rarely do I try to make a statement with my images; instead, I present a subject for investigation and engagement by the viewer.
