Dave Heath    1931-2016

 

photographer

whose images

expressing his sense

of urban isolation

and a yearning

for personal connection

won a fervent

group of admirers

despite his many years

of public obscurity

 

(...)

 

Although his lustrous

black-and-white prints

owed a lot

to the bleaching techniques

of W. Eugene Smith,

and though his poetic images

of people glimpsed in streets

and public parks

sounded some

of the same broken chords

as those struck

by his friend Robert Frank

in his book “The Americans,”

Mr. Heath was in many ways

a school of one.

 

His photographs,

notably collected

in his signature work,

the 1965 book

“A Dialogue With Solitude,”

reflected his own

troubled experience.

 

Born on June 27, 1931,

but quickly abandoned

by his parents,

David Heath

(he was named David

after a maternal

great-grandfather,

a rabbi in Russia)

was raised

in an orphanage

and a series

of foster homes

in Philadelphia.

 

His discovery

of photography

as a teenager

was his salvation.
