Woolworth Walk

David Simchock

Artist Statement: Every adventure has its mystery.  Every culture, its soul. Every community, its spirit.  
The sights. The sounds. The aromas. The vibes. The people. 
Over the course of the journey, they collectively culminate to define the mood of the experience. It is this mood that I aspire to capture with my photography and with my words.
I endeavor to translate this emotion into an intriguing and inviting storyline. One that provides inspiration for my audience to dust off their passports and leave their town or country and their comfort zone behind.
My art is an extension of my insatiable wanderlust.  Through my work, I am sharing my passion on a creative and, ultimately, an experiential level.

Bio:A native of New Jersey, David has lived and traveled overseas for many years and, since returning to the States in 2002, quickly established himself as a reputable freelance photographer and artist. His images have been published in major publications around the world, and he has exhibited his work in numerous galleries and venues from New York City to Asheville. David's efforts have been awarded many prestigious accolades, while his life story and career have been covered in several publications and TV features. 

David is a regular contributor to the music publication Elmore Magazine, contributes as a blogger for WNC Magazine's, and is a staff photographer for the Lake Eden Arts Festival (LEAF) based in Black Mountain, NC. He is also the founder and publisher of a new on-line music magazine, Front Row Focus.  His music imagery is used by several bands and artists for their websites and publicity materials.

David is also an educator, speaker and writer (and aspiring rock star). He enjoys being a stranger in a strange land and taking on new artistic challenges, whether abroad or nearer to his own back yard. He strives to bring a fresh approach to his craft, successfully capturing the mood of the moment, as well as, perhaps, an entire journey.
