David is a long time friend and extremely talented photographer. He is an inventive and charismatic man who I admire greatly. This image from his photo library gives you an example of the quality of his work, which as I see it also reflects the quality of the man.

Our prevailing passion – to be on the water – together
From his website – ‘Levi van Veluw´s photo series are self-portraits, drawn and photographed by himself: a one-man-process. His works constitute elemental transfers; modifying the face as object; combining it with other stylistic elements to create a third visual object of great visual impact. The work you see therefore is not a portrait, but an information-rich image of colour, form, texture, and content. The image contains the history of a short creative process, with the artist shifting between the entities of subject and object.’
