Documentary Photography.  

Document Now is the online space for photographs, books, prints and associated works by myself, UK image maker, David Cross. Here you will be able to stay up to date with all that is new and current in my photographic world. 

Working primarily in black and white, using 35mm film and traditional Leica rangefinder, the work is a mix of art driven images and social realism through documentary photography. This results, I hope, in a heady mix of visual poetry and social comment. I am committed to the documentary approach involving myself in mostly long-term projects, recording the events and moments of life, as only a photographer can.

Currently I am deeply involved with Project Coal Face. This is an in depth look at Free Mines in the Forest of Dean.
