David Wolf- Left Behind

David Wolf's photographs explore worlds both seen and imagined. Whatever his immediate subject, making photographs for Wolf is a process of transformation. "By making a connection between one's inner life and the greater world," he writes, "art transforms not only what we see but who we are. At the heart of this process is empathy."

Left Behind speaks to the parallel lives of things and people. Both document and metaphor, the project collects unwanted, forgotten and discarded things, and places them in a context rich with social insight and emotional resonance. All of the objects have been photographed as found, largely in San Francisco’s Mission District neighborhood, from 2003 to the present.

David's photographs have been exhibited nationally at such venues as the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Griffin Museum of Photography, the Photographic Center Northwest, and the Society for Contemporary Photography. His work is included in a variety of museum, corporate, and private collections.
