With a deeply informed design vocabulary and ability to transport viewers into a life well lived, photographer/director David Land understands the myriad stories there are to tell about the meaning of home.
There are many versions of what constitutes an “American” upbringing, and David can lay claim to an interesting one. He was born in Northern California to a knowledgeable, discerning tribe that included a pilot, a botanist, painters, Asian art collectors, sailors and raconteurs. These were people who loved beauty, entertaining, and travel, who created the world that David absorbed at a cellular level and brings alive in his scrumptious, multilayered photographs and moving images.
Living in Brooklyn with his husband and two sons, he has truly expanded into an even broader world, having long been committed to showcasing the work of Black artists and designers. David has used his beautiful, multicultural home as a canvas, inviting the family into his artistic process and client work as the stars of films, design takeovers and a daily diary.
