Known for Photography

David Alan Harvey (born June 6, 1944, in San Francisco, California) is an American photographer. He has been a full member of the photographic cooperative Magnum Photos since 1997. He has photographed extensively for National Geographic magazine,[1] and in 1978 was named Magazine Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association.[2] Harvey is publisher and editor of Burn Magazine, an online publication featuring the work of emerging photographers.

Career and work

Harvey was raised in Virginia and began photographing at age 11.[3] He graduated from the Graduate School of Journalism, University of Missouri, in 1969, and worked for National Geographic magazine. He was named Magazine Photographer of the Year by the National Press Photographers Association in 1978.[2] He joined Magnum Photos as a nominee in 1993 and became a full member in 1997.[3]

Harvey’s first book, Tell It Like It Is, self-published in 1967, documented the lives of a black family living in Norfolk, Virginia. His two major books, Cubaand Divided Soul, are based on the Spanish cultural migration into the Americas, and Living Proof deals with hip-hop culture.[3] Martin Parr and Gerry Badger say of Harvey’s book (Based on a True Story) that it “takes its place as one of the best of the more extravagantly designed photobooks at a time when extravagant design is making a comeback”.[4]

He is founder and editor of Burn, a website featuring the work of emerging photographers.[5]
