Born in 1985, after an eight year stint in the stock brokerage industry, David Zheng decided to leave his career to pursue his passion for the fine arts. He chose photography as his medium for expression. In early 2017, he traveled to Cuba where he created his first body of work which was eventually recognized and published by several publications. He's currently working on his first photo book out of his studio and darkroom in downtown Brooklyn, New York.
Photographing in urban environments, his depiction of space and urban culture is often abstracted and disconnected from its realties, transporting the viewer's perceptions into a different dimension.
