When I meet my fellow low-tech person, I just have to show my appreciation and respect. I mean, who chooses to go for low-tech, not-so-instantly gratified film photography in this fast paced, 'everything needed to be done yesterday' New York City?
David Batt travels around the world with his film cameras in his hands capturing people's lives and we'll get to peek into their lives here at theCOMPOUNDbrooklyn + bk farmyards on Aug. 22nd. He'll be auctioning some of his pieces.
David Batt graduated from Ithaca College in 1996 with a degree in Still Photography. He lives in Brooklyn and travels frequently, focusing his efforts on documentary photography and photojournalism. His next project will feature images from the streets of India, gathered while visiting Udaipur, Jaipur, Cochin, Delhi, and Mumbai. A catalog of all his photographs will be visible on davidbattphoto.com, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2009.
