Photographer's Description

I first saw "David" in 1983 - and last in 2000. At that time, I didn't have the best of equipment - thought I was a tourist - didn't know that I was a photographer. This is a unique angle. Over the 4 times that I saw "David", I was always trying to get a different view. I like this one - but I didn't want it to be too "in your face," so I abstracted it to soften the effect. The story that David's right hand is larger than the left is true. Over the years, the viewing process has changed. In 1983, you could actually touch the statue (the one large toe was eroding from the touch of millions) and it was lighted solely by available light from the dome over his head. In May of 2000, it was roped off and lighting increased artificially with spotlights. Since the thrust is to protect the artwork - the time may come when you can't photograph it at all.
