A Brief Bio .....
David was born in Chile, traveled all over Latin America and lived in countries like Argentina, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Costa Rica. So, you could say that Latin America runs in his blood and is the primary focus of his photography.
Many, many, many years ago he moved to the U.S. and studied Latin American History and Journalism at the University of New Mexico. Later, with a Master’s degree from the Thunderbird School of Global Management in his tight fist he went to work in advertising and marketing. A fun career helping smarter people guide the marketing of major brands reaching the burgeoning Hispanic market: toothpaste, beer, tourism, packaged goods, retail, banking, panty hose, soft drinks, government, you name it, Flynn worked on them all.
His interest in photography began in New Mexico on the mesas, mountains, and deserts explored in a copper-colored 1969 Dodge Coronet; a graduation gift from his father. Now you'll see him bouncing around Central America in bush planes, chicken buses, tuk-tuks, riverboats, and tricycle taxis capturing life and soaking up the atmosphere. Feeling lucky to be able to live in the colorful 500-year-old city of León, Nicaragua, David works on improving his nascent photography skills and wishing he had a dog.
David Flynn's influences include Diego Rivera, Chuck Jones, and André Kertész.
He hails from South Austin, Texas.
