In David Knox’s photography the past resides in the present in many forms – land, crops, architecture, and people. He seeks those images that harbor these ghosts and, acting as icons, deliver a modern interpretation of such themes as religion, home, loss, ritual, birth, and death.

Incorporating photographic printing processes from the 19th, 20th and 21st Centuries, he mounts archival pigment prints onto metal plates and paints these with varnish and stain. The final pieces vary from single images to larger, multiple image collages and range in size from small to large-scale.
