About David Buss

I am a visual artist working primarily but not exclusively in photography. I studied Art and Design at Folkestone School of Arts and Craft, Maidstone College of Art and Design, and the University of Manchester. It was through painting and drawing that I acquired my knowledge and understanding of light, space, form, colour and composition which informed my subsequent practice in photography. I had no formal tuition in photography, but I attended numerous workshops including sessions led by Paul Hill, Fay Godwin and Ray Moore. My work has been exhibited work in the UK and USA and published in various journals. Major photographic projects include Allotments and Leisure Gardens, The A38, Rainbows, Scarecrows, and The White Bicycle. I have written research papers on Colour which were presented at international conferences and published in research journals - in most cases, these were supported with my own photographs. I taught in universities in the UK and USA and was conferred with an Emeritus Professorship by the University for the Creative Arts. I write articles, illustrated with my own photographs, for the UCA Alumni magazine Creative Update.
