David Alan Harvey was born in San Francisco in 1944. It took him almost 11 years to discover his interest towards Photography. In 1956 he bought a used Leica using his savings money. By the end of 1964, he had many photo documents of few Black Family living in Virginia. These Photos were the roots of his first book “tell it like it is”.
From there he went on to shoot & write more than 40 photo essays for National Geographic magazine. Since 1997 he is a full-time member of the most prestigious group Magnum Photos. Mr.Harvey is the chief publisher and editor of Burn Magazine, which is an online publication through which he supports emerging Photographers too.
Known for his color portraits and great street life. Mr.Harvey’s book “Cuba” shows great images bringing the life in those cities along with the green countryside. These Pictures show us the Proper Contemporary way of Life in Cuba.
Bangkok. Shot for his “Dream Hotel” series. This is a project he actually started 5 years ago, yet it’s been on the back burner all this time. It will most likely be a zine rather than a book. This hotel swimming pool will be the location for our Magnum workshops final slideshow of student work from Jacob Aue Sobel’s class.
