David Straight was born in Christchurch, raised on the West Coast, and graduated from Massey University School of Fine Arts, Wellington. He is a photographer whose work focuses primarily on architecture and the built environment. While living in London and New York, where he interned at Magnum Photos, David’s street photography and habit of walking and exploring sharpened his appreciation of the impact of architecture and urban design on our everyday lives. His practice has evolved into a more focused exploration of the built environment and architecture, and he now works with many leading New Zealand architects. His previous book, in collaboration with friend and landscape designer Philip Smith, was Vernacular: The Everyday Landscape of New Zealand (Potton & Burton, 2015). John Scott Works (Massey University Press, 2019) was published in March 2019. David now lives in Auckland.
