The Story Behind the Shot: "Eiffel Tower Selfies" was taken in Paris, France, in October 2014. I had owned my first Leica Monochrom for only a few months, but it's a Leica after all. I was a bit stunned by the sophistication and dedication of my fellow travelers when it came to recording their exploits and place in the world. But I didn't get it, and still don't; I'd never waste a second of my opportunities to look out, as opposed to in.
Artist bio: David Darby, ASC, is a cinematographer based in Los Angeles, CA. He has spent the last 30 + years shooting national and international commercials, and a few Indie Films. It all began for him, however, at age 12 with a stills camera and black and white film. It continues today with as much to learn as ever, and that's the point.
