David Kressler is a landscape photographer whose work explores the complex and sometimes contradictory ideas concerning land use, growth, and consumption and how they relate to our perceptions of beauty and the sublime.
David was born in Silver Spring, Maryland in 1968 and received a BFA in photography from MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in 1990. He lived in New York City for fifteen years working both as a commercial and fine art photographer. He relocated to Portland, Oregon in 2014.
He is currently working on several projects including Viewpoint, an examination of scenic observation points; Oasis, a look at commercialized highway rest stops, and Coal River, a study of areas affected by mountain top removal in West Virginia.
