David Mendelsohn: Harmony and Melody

David Mendelsohn is a photographer based in southern New Hampshire (near Boston), yet working worldwide for design firms, ad agencies and corporations. There are very few airports he hasn't seen.

"All things must be considered. Harmonies must be present for the message to be fluent. It must come together symphonically. If there is too much noise, it is difficult to hear the melody." --Professional Photographer








Run for the Stars


As a former designer, his work is characterized by a unique and highly graphic style. David is hired by his clients for his ability to see things in a certain way, a talent to work with people on all levels and the experience to bring home the images, no matter what the circumstances.

"Though the pictures are composed with a studied desire for simplicity, I found my eye darting around the paper as though I was looking at a medieval, illuminated manuscript, trying to better penetrate the veil of the arcane, intentionally mystified vision." --ZOOM Magazine

"Within the frame, if I can say things in a simple vein, with the fewest possible distractions to the mind and eye, I am finally satisfied." --Communication Arts

Both his commercial and personal work have received innumerable national awards and honors. Additionally, his images are represented in many private and corporate collections and his prints have been exhibited in galleries as far away as Tokyo, Paris, Hamburg, Cologne and the Philippines. For information about obtaining any of the work in either of the portfolio sections, select prints. A selected client list is also available.

"I like to impart my work with a certain grace, some order and balance. If you don't prepare your canvas, the paint has nothing to adhere to." --Nikon Product Guide

"I have been fortunate enough to be involved with photography ever since my Dad passed me his weary Argus C-3. Although it became another one of my interests, it evolved into a passion while engaged as a graphic designer for UNH and discovered that I preferred being behind the camera rather than my straight edge. While tenured there, my work began getting published by serious venues such as Print Magazine, Communication Arts , received an NEA grant , collected by the likes of Polaroid and invited to join Magnum. At that point, I decided it was time to migrate, to change career directions and pursue photography on a dedicated basis. That was approximately 25 years ago.

Photography has allowed me to see the world and enjoy an entree to people, locations and enriched by encounters which would normally be inaccessible. It has also helped satisfy a certain wanderlust , which is still, and likely will always be, nipping at my heels.

I've never quite lost my design background and seems to manifest itself in my work. I am attracted to the crisp and clean and strive to eliminate any unnecessary information, intentionally distilling my work down to fairly basic elements. I am also a large fan of formal composition and compelled to keep a certain visual harmony within the frame.

In a sense I work in abstractions, condensing a fairly complex world into small, digestible portions. I gravitate toward what might be described as a visual economy and in the end, I am most content when a viewer is left with few distractions and little doubt about what they are looking at." David Mendelsohn
