David Baberle

David Gaberle was born in Prague in 1989. He picked up a camera while on an intermission from his degree in anthropology at UCL. At first, the camera was a therapeutic tool that helped him deal with the overwhelming rush-hours on the way to work as a bartender in one of Prague’s jazz clubs. By 2015, the camera became a research instrument and David traveled for eight months through some of the world’s largest cities to capture photos for his debut book Metropolight. He likes to think that the experience of taking photos helps him grow over time. Especially in street-photography, getting a good shot requires patience. David is the type of photographer who is still trying to move beyond self-perception. Great light, situations, composition, well-matched coincidences are taking him on a road out of a context of a daily reality.
