David Welch is a fine art photographer based in Savannah, GA and Martha’s Vineyard, MA. He is currently a MFA candidate in photography at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Of this series, Material World, he writes, ‘My work is a response to this contemporary consumer milieu. By treating artifacts of consumer culture as readymades, I create assemblages to form pseudo monuments, or totems, that serve as precarious externalizations of culture as social biography. The totems speak of accumulation and materiality and encourage debate about consumption, media, class, gender and the ways in which we feel compelled to consume’.
