- the maker
David Petr began crafting exclusive, larger-than-life photographic interpretations of iconic objects of our collective past in 2008. Rusted, dented and scratched items rich with patina are common topics explored under David's lens. The steadily growing body of work began with Petr's determined search for captivating objects from antique stores, flea markets, junk shops, online, and across the country. Hand-picked with an almost obsessive eye for quality, his found objects are orchestrated under the camera, often with several shots to create one final image. Shadows and highlights are precisely controlled, resulting in an image with uncompromising clarity.
David looks to find beauty in common objects of a simpler time. By dramatically increasing the size of the objects he photographs, he looks to change the context of the subject matter. His edition sizes are quite uncommon among photographers, creating high demand for his large prints. All framed works are custom matted and framed to give the artwork a long and healthy life.
Recent collections feature collage pieces including souvenir matchbooks, bottle caps, hotel soaps, and foreign currency, painstakingly captured by photographing and color correcting each object individually. The end result is an image that is technically superior than any traditional photograph of this size.
Producing limited edition series of 20, 10 and even one-of-a-kind prints, Petr is always on the lookout for the next visual narrative. He seeks out objects that resonate with the viewer, including memories and emotional connections from mid-20th century. When not searching for a dilapidated pinball machine or vintage cocktail stirrer set, David resides in Florida with his wife and four kids.
