About me

David Penner hails from a family of photographers, and never tires of photographing the people of New York City, the city of his birth. 

His photographs have appeared in F-Stop Magazine, SocialDocumentary.Net, Positive Magazine, The Village Voice, TPS Contact Sheet, and Lens Culture (www.lensculture.com/david-penner). He had his first solo show, Sacred Night, in the Fall of 2013 at The 1199 Bread and Roses Gallery in Midtown Manhattan. Additional solo shows followed at Joe Coffee Waverly Place (Winter 2014), and at The Mulberry Branch of The New York Public Library (Summer 2015). 

His photo essay on the homeless of New York City, as well as his photo essay on Combat Veterans, were both featured in Positive Magazine; and his photo essay on the people of Bryant Park was chosen as an Editor's Pick on Lens Culture. 

David has photographed food and restaurants extensively for Zagat and The Village Voice and this work can be viewed here: www.dpfoodphoto.com.
