David Straight

David Straight is an Auckland-based photographer who specialises in architecture. His interest in the built environment started as a street photographer in London and New York, and has followed through to documenting the built environment, from photographing architecture for some of New Zealand’s leading architects to an ongoing exploration of the subtleties of the everyday landscape. He continues to explore the evolving nature of photography through artist books. His 2015 book Vernacular, in collaboration with landscape designer Philip Smith, received a highly commended award at the 2016 New Zealand Photo Book Awards.
