Working in the traditional genre of still-life photography David Halliday first gained renown for his sepia-toned silver prints. His latest body of color work maintains the same intimate and simple beauty but also creates a more visceral connection for the viewer. The rich colors and sensual textures seem embodied by the scents and nature of the items he selects.
The photographs in this exhibition were shot in New Orleans, where David Halliday lives, Italy, Greece and other locations. His work is characterized by attention to detail and to composition. Like a painter, David Halliday emphasizes volumes, balances, texture and areas of subtle shading.
