David Chancellor


His work takes him across the world, from the tribal lands of Kenya to the shadowy mountains of Scotland. His interests are mapping that jagged and bloody line where Man and Beast meet. He has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions, shown in major galleries and museums, and published around the world. Visually reminiscent of 19th century daguerreotypes, David’s photographs are captivating, engaging and thought provoking. His passion for his work allows him to consistently succeed in navigating the minefields surrounding his chosen subjects. The resulting bodies of work never fail to draw people in and create a space for much needed dialogue. Recognised by World Press Photo, the Taylor Wessing National Portrait Award and Pictures of the Year International, David published the monograph ‘Hunters’ in 2012. His work continues to examine humanity’s commodification of wildlife.
