The judges from ORBIS and Digital Camera World thought David’s portfolio of portraits stood out amongst the thousands of entries for their clever storytelling, his fascinating engagement with his subjects and technical excellence.
Born in 1990, David has spent the last three years studying photojournalism at London College of Communication, focusing his work on in-depth investigations of human rights issues.
The images he submitted (see below) were taken from his numerous stints visiting the West Bank, Palestine and recently Gaza:
David has also worked with undocumented migrants living illegally who are trying to make a better life in Greece and France.
David said he was "thrilled to have this opportunity to work with ORBIS and document its important work."

The trip to Nepal
David will be traveling with ORBIS medical volunteers in late October to witness sight-saving surgery and training in Nepal.
He is visiting the Geta Eye Hospital in Dhangadhi with three ORBIS medical volunteers who are providing hand on training to local eye doctors, restoring the vision of people suffering needlessly from preventable blindness.
David will tell the ORBIS story in his own way through a photo story that will be published in Digital Camera World Magazine later this year.
