Brief Bio

After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Art from Rochester Institute of Technology, David Kutz moved to New York City and became the eleventh employee at the newly-founded International Center of Photography. During his two years at ICP he hung exhibitions, built darkrooms, participated in master class workshops, and taught photography.

David worked as an independent photojournalist from 1976 to 1980, with assignments from the New York Times, Life, Look, and Time magazines.

For the next three decades David worked in film and television as a director, producer, and media executive. In addition to commercial and industrial assignments, he created the award winning documentary, The African Burial Ground: An American Discovery (1994) and was a senior executive directing the launch of VOOM-HD, a package of 15 high definition cable channels distributed in the USA, Europe and Asia.

In 2013, David decided to return to photography as an art form, and earned an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts in 2016.

David is now actively engaged in making work and continuing his research into geography, urban planning, travel and globalization. He is a member of Soho Photo Gallery, a cooperative gallery in New York City, the International Panorama Council, and volunteers by assisting with grant applications with Gowanus Arts, his local arts organization.
