David Skernick was born in the heartland of the United States.
David started taking pictures of the only interesting things in his hometown: people and landscapes. He eventually narrowed his work to landscapes because nature didn’t ask so many questions.
David developed an appreciation of the sometimes-overlooked magnificence that is American nature and landscapes. He travels exclusively in his truck “Bob” on the “grey roads” (back roads), and never the same road twice.
Recent shows include the L.A. Photo Show and Photo L.A. 2015 and 2016 and Photo Independent 2015. The book Lost on Gray Roads was released along with a showing at the ArtLA gallery in Bergamot Station in Los Angeles in 2013.
David resides in Woodland Hills, California with his wife Ria and dogs Chewy and Dudley. He spends as much time as possible teaching and traveling the grey roads of America.
Schiffer Books has published “Yellowstone Country”, “Back Roads of Southern California”, “Back Roads of Northern California”, “American Carnival”, “How Did You Get That Shot” and “Back Roads of the Southwest”. These books are currently available for order and preorder.
