David Houghton - Art Photography
David Houghton is an artist and photographer. His work deals with the themes of transience, imperfection and time's passing, inspired by the Japanese philosophies of Mono No Aware and Wabi-Sabi.
Influenced by Bernd and Hilla Becher's photography, the paintings of Agnes Martin and George Shaw, and Yasujiro Ozu's films, he searches for the exceptional in the ordinary and makes it visible. He explores ways of understanding more about himself and the outside world through his work.
Much of his canon combines multiple photographs to create a single image that takes on a whole new collective ambience to its constituent parts when viewed in its entirety.
In 2019 he was one of the winners in the LensCulture Art Photography Awards 2019, coming 2nd in the single image category, with On the way to Shimoda.
