Artist Statement

“My photographs are an attempt to understand the process of creation. They represent a pilgrimage seeking answers to which the questions as well as the answers are wordless. I regard photography not just as a way of seeing but as a way of living, a search or a journey worth making. I have visited Ireland many times, often with the late artist David A. Lang. Together we would explore abandoned Irish farmhouses, convents and cemeteries, liberating found objects and making them into art.”

– David Lee Black



David Lee Black is an award-winning New England-based photographer and sculpture artist. He is a storyteller on a never-ending pilgrimage to capture people, places and events in moments both simple and sublime. His work is simultaneously whimsical and serious, graceful and awkward, understated and conspicuously complex. He also applies his artistic skill and personal philosophy to his work in music, expressive arts therapy, educational workshops and visual artist performances.

The artist is currently working on his second photography book, “The Vanishing Light of Ireland” which will be published in 2020. Visit for more of his photography.
