David Brandon Geeting’s Neighbourhood Stroll sees the photographer Instagram posting on mass

We have long been fans of David Brandon Geeting’s glossy photography which reinvents everyday objects into a sophisticated still life shoot. Whether he’s shooting Dev Hynes or an artichoke, David treats each object with photographic grace.

David recently sent us an ongoing series of his, Neighbourhood Stroll, a photographic sketchbook of sorts. “About once a month I will go on a long walk around my neighbourhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn and pull as many photos out of thin air as I can,” the photographer tells It’s Nice That. “I will then edit these down and make mass posts on my Instagram account, ranging anywhere from 15 to 45 photos at one time.”

Posting on mass on Instagram changes the typical way people engage with the platform, but in terms of David’s practice it is a suitable representation. “I do it this way because I think it best replicates the experience of discovery I have while walking around and shooting.” David has been completing his monthly walk for just over a year and “though I consider this work to be as valid as the rest of my studio practice, it doubles as a sketchbook for my ideas, as a lot of them come from taking walks and looking around”.

At the moment photographs from David’s Neighbourhood Stroll series “can only be found by trawling through the depths of my Instagram, though my goal is to turn it into a book soon,” so keep your eyes peeled!
