In the Footsteps of Alfred
by David Comora
In the Footsteps of Alfred by David Comora is a collection of black and white photographs taken in New York City locations where Alfred Stieglitz may have placed his feet, in a spirit he championed. Stieglitz's contributions to the art of photography remain critical to showing us what is possible. What started for David as the search for a "truncated cityscape" slowly became a study of approach and vision. This is not an homage to one of the craft’s great early masters, but rather a meditation on dedication, process, and practice.
David Comora started making photographs in a middle school darkroom in the sixth grade and began serious study at the International Center of Photography in 2014 with photographer/author Barbara Mensch. He has continued learning independently and collaboratively since, including classes with StrudelmediaLive. His work has been exhibited at the Griffin Museum of Photography, Center for Photography at Woodstock, PhotoPlace Gallery, Sparks Gallery, ClampArt, and is included in private collections.
