Artist Biography:
David DeJonge is a national photographer. He has taken portraits and interviewed various political and historical figures. He tries to balance his body of art with historical events. "My goal as a photographer is to cause the viewer to reflect on themselves and not the image. If they are looking at the image, they are looking at the wrong thing because photography can never grow up if it is imitated. It has to walk alone; it has to be itself." -David DeJonge
