Born in New York City, David Reinfeld began his photographic career in the '60-s in New York City honing skills as a street photographer, taking pictures and protesting. Early in his career he documented the signs of our times, and taught photography at the Public Theatre to inner city children. This period was his “coming of age”; photography became his first love, and would last forever.
In the early ’70-s, Reinfeld received his MFA Photography at the Rhode Island School of Design; one of his teachers was Aaron Siskind. He taught David that photography was much more than the content we see. Influenced by the experimental nature of art during this period, Reinfeld looked for and created abstraction in his images. He photographed graffiti and decayed walls anywhere he could find them. With the emergence of digital photography and other tools, he discovered composite photography. Today Reinfeld continues to test abstraction in imagery. For him, art is not only an arrangement of form and content, but of awareness of visual impact and communication. David Reinfeld still lives and works in New York City, where he grew up embracing, supporting and working in the visual arts. He lives with his wife Debra, and daughter Maggie. His hobbies include skiing, biking and mountaineering. He is also a deep-rooted martial artist, practicing Aikido for over thirty-five years.
