David Burnett is a photojournalist with more than 5 decades of work covering the news, the people, and visual tempo of our age. He is co-founder of Contact Press Images, the New York based photojournalism agency.

In an issue of American Photo magazine, Burnett was named one of the "100 Most Important People in Photography." (That made his mom very happy.)   In the spring of 2018, David was awarded the Sprague Award for Lifetime Achievement from the National Press Photographers Assn., though he claims he is trying to figure out what his subsequent 'lifetime' work will be.  In his career, he has created photographs of history unfolding: war, sport, politics, the famous, the infamous, and the Unfamous.

In a world gone mad over digital photography, his kit includes a 70-year-old Speed Graphic press camera, and a plastic $30 HOLGA.  Each has a place alongside his digital cameras, each camera a tool to find the right look for the right moment.
