David Joshua Jennings was born and raised in Oklahoma. His interest in photography began as a teenager, during his first travels around America, when he discovered the camera as a way to explore and comment upon culture and society. David has spent much of his adult life on the road, traveling through more than 70 countries, working on projects as both photographer and writer. During this time, his camera and pen have served as a means of exploration as well as its justification. He has documented his journeys and allowed his craft to grow organically through experimentation and error. He has never formally studied photography and works primarily in the documentary tradition.

He is based out of New Orleans.
