David Jo Bradley is an Australian documentary photographer. He currently works in London, UK, and Perth, Western Australia.
David's photographic practice holds a familiarity entrenched in reality, which at the same time comments on the secret strangeness lying below the surface of contemporary human existence. Key themes include consumerism, environmental sustainability and American culture, and how these factors influence the world at large.
David graduated from Edith Cowan University’s School of Photography in 2008. In 2009 he relocated to London to focus solely on documentary photography.
David has undertaken several international documentary photography projects, each focussing on the interaction between humans, the environment, and culture. In July 2012 David visited the Northwest of Western Australia, documenting human impact on the Cape Range bioregion, which includes the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park and the Cape Range National Park.
In March 2011 he travelled to China to commence the first phase of documenting this rapidly changing country as its political, cultural and economoic influence grows.
Also in 2011 David travelled to Madagascar, Mongolia and Russia, documenting social changes brought about by communication technologies in societies at various stages of economic and social development.
David is currently finalising a documentary project started 2009, which follows the transition of cultures along traditional religious fault lines in Northern Africa and Mediterranean Europe.
David's work has been exhibited in numerous shows throughout Australia and internationally, and he is a creative board member for the Perth Centre for Photography.
