AboutâLeica Postcards' juxtaposes images of people and places to show off the skills of one of Manchester's most successful commercial photographers. The collection of work focuses on snapshots of trips David Lake has undertaken across the globe. After starting to work as a photographer full time over ten years ago, David has traveled the world on International assignments, covering events such as The Asian Tsunami of 2004 for two U.K based Charities. This sort of work developed his interest in the people that inhabit the places he visits and has resulted in a wonderful selection of portraits showing a rich diversity in the people he meets on his journeys.
âLeica Postcards' is his personal visual ethnography, displaying the places and people David has discovered and spent time with during his photographic exploration of cities, cultures and communities across the world.
