I think my work survives best in the world without being accompanied by clunky words trying to describe it. David Brandon Geeting Metal Magazine


Photographer David Brandon Geeting doesn't play by the rules. Throughout his career, Geeting has developed an immediately identifiable visual language that ignores reason or convention, built upon having fun, being inventive, and challenging photographic norms.

The work in Amusement Park is a visual playground with an abundance of visual spectacles, playful juxtapositions and colorful manic energy that bursts with lyricism. The project is produced with hybrids of genres, from still-life to portraiture, studio invention and documentary storytelling, each of which blur the boundaries of what’s expected from any of their singular traditions.

While many photographic conversations lead to asking the photographer, 'why?', Geeting asks, 'why not?' His work is bred from unconstrained and impulsive curiosity. “I let the art outsmart me," says Geeting. "Sometimes I’ll have an idea involving a few objects that might work together in the same frame, but I almost never know what that frame will look like.” Whether photographing in the studio or outside, his work is a product of discovery, rather than pre-determination, and is predicated on the seeking of what he, and in turn the viewer, has never seen before. “If I’m not surprised by what I’m making,” he says, “how can I expect my audience to be surprised?”

What results from Geeting’s surprises are pictures that are loud, spontaneous, and charismatic. The notion of an amusement park, as Geeting suggests, “has always been an onslaught of colors, noises, whizzing imagery, and total mayhem. It’s like a collage of sensory overload.” Geeting’s work elevates the spectacle to an art form and taps into a primal element of our contemporary visual experience.

Artist

David Brandon Geeting

1989 (USA)

David Brandon Geeting is a New York based photographer who bridges genres, composing a colourful world which balances skillful chaos with wide-eyed curiosity.

In David’s world, subjects take on a new guise when re-photographed, re-assembled, or juxtaposed together in unexpected and sometimes humorous combinations.

His self-described urge to ‘find equal potential in all things’ has produced an impressive portfolio of still life photography. Building upon this same ethos, David’s work also spans the worlds of fashion and portraiture – whilst always maintaining the irreverent sense of humour and playfulness that marks his work out as his own.

David’s 2019 monograph Neighborhood Stroll is a collection of photographs taken outside in Geeting’s own neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn. With no humans present in the images, the work dissects what they’ve left behind. His work has been published in two other monographs including Infinite Power (2015), a whimsical compilation of his early still life work, and 2017’s Amusement Park, which builds upon his studio improvisations with the addition of brightly lit portraits and documentary images of an actual theme park. His recent book, “A Spell Too Far,” is a collaboration with artist Lina Sun Park, and sees the artist duo speaking in visual metaphor with household materials, everyday staples, and sometimes even themselves.
