about

David Brunetti is a London based photojournalist working worldwide, specialising in editorial, portraiture and in-depth documentary photography.

David’s personal projects are visual narratives, gathered over extended periods of time, which confront issues of human rights, migration, refugees, conflict and identity. With a particular interest in humanitarian issues affecting identity in (post) conflict situations, David aims to capture images that will influence, leave lasting impressions, move and inspire.

David’s photography has featured in a variety of publications including Zeit Online, New Internationalist, The Guardian, and Wall Street Journal. Recognition of his work has culminated in a number of photography awards, including Felix Schöller Photo Award, KLPA, Portrait Salon and the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize.

David currently dedicates much of his time to long-term photojournalism and reportage work and regularly photographs for documentary and exhibition projects, in addition to other assignments.
