David Lang

While in Pakistan photographing the parliamentary elections in February 2008, David Lang began photographing men and women in their work environments in and on the streets of Pakistan. Creating portraits of the people and workers of the cities as he traveled David photographed lawyers outside the District Courts in Islamabad, young street children shining shoes, working on motorcycles and cutting hair as well as the truckers who pilot "jingle trucks" throughout the country as well as into and out of Afghanistan.

David Lives in Brooklyn, New York. He has photographed the effects of the tsunami in Sri Lanka, the earthquakes in Pakistan as well as the ongoing conflicts in Israel and in Afghanistan. His work has been used by the International Organization of Migration (IOM/OIM), UNICEF, the United Nations, Aid Sri Lanka, InterNews and other NGO/aid organizations as well as ABC TV, Wiesner Media and Weber Shandwick.
