David Mendelsohn - Camera Man

Above: Photo by PT Sullivan David Mendelsohn came to UNH to study forestry, but soon gravitated to the photo labs. It was a good move. His photos began appearing in significant journals of photography and he received a grant from the NEA to photograph an extended road trip titled “Route 40.” It’s the kind of assignment most photographers would consider their ticket to the New York photo scene, but David liked it nearer to the trees. He kept his family in New Hampshire, but his work has found its way onto the walls of galleries and spaces as far-flung as Amsterdam, Tokyo and Paris. Magazines like Zoom, Communication Arts and Digital Photo Pro, where he once submitted photos, now publish editorial features about him. He was recently declared a “Nikon Legend” for his visionary ouvre that incorporates profound color, surrealism and humor.
