Over the last few months I have been working with photographer and filmmaker David Eustace on editing his twenty-five year archive of work to create his long awaited first monograph. The book titled I Write To Tell You Of a Baby Boy Born Yesterday… is now available on pre-order.
Scots born David Eustace worked on minesweepers and in the notorious Barlinnie Prison as a prison officer before discovering photography. He began his photographic career as a mature student at Edinburgh Napier University and within weeks of graduating, found himself working for GQ, Tatler, Vogue, The Sunday Times and Sunday Telegraph magazines amongst many others.
Now based between New York City and Edinburgh, his subjects read like a list of Who’s Who in the world of art, cinema, music and design. He has undertaken commissions for multiple global brands and fronted international campaigns for the Panasonic Lumix system. His work has seen him document the landscapes of the USA, The Middle East, Asia and his homeland of Scotland. Eustace’s images have been exhibited internationally and are held in private and public collections worldwide. In recognition of his work Eustace was awarded a Hon Dr of Arts (Photography) in 2011 from Edinburgh Napier University
‘The thing I like about David’s photos are the empty spaces. There’s a romantic desolation about them. They’re very peaceful.”
