David Bowman joined Perpich in 2021 in the Media Arts department. Bowman grew up in Chicago, studied writing in Madison, traversed the Australian outback via camel, and drifted to the Twin Cities some time thereafter. One of the first people David met in Minnesota was fashion photographer Richard Avedon. He was giving a talk to students at the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and David asked him what advice he might give a struggling artist. Avedon responded, “Start working.” So he did, ultimately making photographs for the likes of Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, National Geographic, Target, Disney, and Dwell. In time, he earned an MFA and was named Best Of ASMP by the American Society of Media Photographers. You can visit David’s website for more information: https://www.bowmanstudio.com
