Dawid has been called Sweden´s first post-modern artist and has for over thirty years been making series of photographically based artworks examining the nature of the medium and exploring issues of perception.
He began photographing in the late sixties, documenting incongruous moments with a wry sense of humour, until he established his signature style of stark graphic illustration, initiated by the seminal Rost series. His work often balances on a tight rope between the graphic and the photographic and reflects, criticises and parallels the chequered history and changing status of photography.
A photographic alchemist, intellectual and scientist with a long list of solo exhibitions and group exhibitions including Moderna Museet Stockholm, The National Museum of Art Oslo, Galleri Riis Oslo, Nordic Light Kristiansund, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and Swedish Photography Berlin, to name a few. He has published more than 30 personal photobooks and is a collectors choice with his work in prestigeous collections like The National Museum of Art Oslo, Moderna Museet and the Hasselblad Collection to mention a few (Please find lists in the press section) as well as a wide range of private collections.
