Photo DBarbour-168.jpg


1994 - 2018


Influenced by his career at the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), David has travelled to Havana 26 times to document life on the street, complete assignments for UNICEF, CIDA, IDRC and to instruct one week photo workshops for the Ottawa School of Art and SPAO.


He gratefully acknowledges the support of a Mid-Career Canada Council Grant in 1999 to continue his work in Havana. He has exhibited the project at Carleton University Art Gallery, Ottawa School of Art, Contact Photo Festival in Toronto and the Vancouver Public Art Gallery.


All of the photographs in this project are produced with black and white film using a variety of different cameras.
