About the Artist
This is a work by artist David Prifti.
David Prifti (1961-2011) lived his life with passion, relentless energy and an unfaltering appetite for art and learning. A dedicated father, husband and an inspirational teacher, he was famous for saying “Do something for your art every day!” As these works show, he relished and captured personal connection. Prifti created two distinct bodies of work, Photographic Assemblages and Tintypes, which show us his mastery of the wet plate collodion method of the 1850s.
