David Weinberg is a Chicago-based photographer whose work spans abstraction, narrative and portraits of different cultures around the world. He received a BS in Business from Roosevelt University in 1967 and then worked for 35 years in his family’s business. Weinberg then followed his true passion of photography and began producing abstract works that bent reality with sweeping, painterly gestures. More recently he has shifted to making narrative images inspired by the lives of others, hard work and the ephemerality of time. Weinberg’s photographs have been exhibited at such venues as the Elmhurst Art Museum, Art Chicago, Loyola University Museum of Art, the Field Museum, and most recently, The Fountain Gallery at Purdue University, The William & Florence Schmidt Art Center at Southwestern Illinois College, and the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum in Chicago.
Launching his artistic career in 2006, Weinberg established a contemporary art gallery, now known as Weinberg/Newton Gallery, where he is Executive Director. His commitment to educational reform and passion for social justice is at the core of the gallery's mission.
