Garnick's fine art photography features landscapes and architecture from around the Bay Area. His prints recall the look of early 20th century lithographs.
David grew up in a family of artists. He has chaired the department of computer science at Bowdoin College, been a product manager for Google News, and directed the San Francisco International Photography Exhibition. He draws on these technical and production skills in the creation of his beautiful imagery.
Throughout my life, I've created art from and in nature. Since 2004 I've focused on the social and environmental dimensions of my art-- hosting group art-making events and workshops, teaching in public and private schools, training teachers and museum staff, and installing hands-on "Create-With-Nature Zones" in parks, schools, museums, and public spaces. My endeavors are in the tradition of social sculpture, in service to nature and to society. I strive to create models and methods for collective creativity; to connect people of all ages with each other and with the natural world; and to inspire joy, spontaneity, and environmental action.
I love beauty and find it often in flowers and leaves. I consider myself a simple person with a straightforward approach. I enlarge the botanical specimens so others may find their beauty of form and color more readily. My job as an artist is to help others find beauty in simplicity.
