David Reinfeld is an American fine art photographer, born in New York City December 1952, and currently resides in Northern New Jersey. David picked up his first camera at the age of twelve and has never stopped taking pictures. First as a NYC street photographer, he began teaching photography to inner city children at the Public Theatre in Manhattan, and worked as a teaching assistant at The New School.
In the early ’70-s, as an MFA graduate student and teacher at the Rhode Island School of Design, David had the great privilege of studying with Aaron Siskind, Harry Callahan, Lisette Model, and Minor White. Their classes were his introduction to the world of art, and their teachings remain a fundamental part of the way he sees. Since his RISD days, David’s interests have become more eclectic, photographing a range of genres, from the abstract walls of graffiti to the remote canyons of the southwest. He has published and exhibited his photographs throughout his career as a fine art photographer. David is also a writer, currently working on a book about the creative moment, and image making as a fine art aesthetic.
