David Alan Harvey's photographs spark the human psyche. His books Cuba (National Geographic; 1999) and Divided Soul (Phaidon Press; 2003) capture the effects of the blood and sweat of a cultural migration into the Americas. Living Proof (powerHouse Books; 2007) explores hip-hop culture. His 2012 award-winning book (based on a true story) published by BurnBooks and in collaboration with his son, Bryan Harvey, broke new ground in photo book narrative form and design.
His work has been exhibited at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, the Biblioteque Nacional, Paris, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts among other venues. Some of his most prolific essays have appeared in NatGeo since 1973.
As a popular mentor for young photographers, Harvey founded Burn Magazine, an award-winning online and in print journal for emerging photographers. He is currently the publisher of BurnBooks, a press specializing in limited edition art books. Harvey is a member of the legendary Magnum Photos cooperative. David lives in the Outer Banks of North Carolina.
Harvey joined Magnum as a nominee in 1993 and became a full member in 1997. He lives in NC and NYC.
