David Brandon Geeting: Amusement Park
David Brandon Geeting is a New York-based photographer who focuses on bringing out compelling details in his subjects with the use of harsh light. His subjects vary from the everyday to the extraordinary.
After studying at New York’s School of Visual Arts, Geeting claims that he began chronicling anything and everything around him. Common objects take on a new facade when re-photographed, re-assembled, or juxtaposed together in colorful, surprising and humorous combinations.
His self-proclaimed urge to ‘shine a spotlight on things that are otherwise insignificant’ has produced an exciting portfolio of still life photography. Building upon this same philosophy, Geeting’s work also spans the worlds of fashion and portraiture – while consistently maintaining the derisive sense of humor and playfulness that makes his work unique.
His work has been published in three monographs including Infinite Power (2015), an amusing compilation of imagery that the artist describes as ‘a collection of nothing’ – a photograph from which won him the American Photography 32 Award. More recently 2016’s S.K.N.P (South Korean Nature Photography) investigates relationships between the natural and urban. His newest book is Amusement Park (2017.)
In the ongoing personal project ‘Neighborhood Stroll’, Geeting makes daily observations of his personal environment, walking the streets to catch a glimpse of the spontaneous in his Brooklyn neighborhood.
