Unfinished Business. These photographs are from an ongoing book project titled “Unfinished Business” with a forward by Magnum photographer Constantine Manos.
This book presently consists of 60 color photographs taken throughout the US over the past 10 years. As Constantine Manos mentioned in the forward, hopefully, it will be a book that people return to over and over again.
I have always believed that my photographs say as much about me as what I am feeling or viewing. Throughout my life, I have always enjoyed the simple act of looking at things—watching people going about their business, working, dreaming, loving, alone in their thoughts, and immune from the outside world. I am attracted to that special moment when they are in harmony with their surroundings, pure, naked, unaware and honest. I leave these images captionless because I prefer the viewer to be free to insert their own personal interpretation or story into each photograph.
Photographer: David Saxe
Country: United States
Bio: I was born in Montreal, Québec, Canada in 1943 and studied fine art at l’ecole des Beaux Arts in Montreal. I became interested in becoming being a photographer after viewing the work of Robert Frank, Andre Kertesz and Henri Cartier Bresson.
For 4 years, I studied with the Canadian photographer John Max and participated in a number of group shows and solo exhibits in Canada before moving to the United States in 1992. I am now based in Santa Fe, NM.
