David Weinberg is a Chicago-based photographer whose work touches on a wide variety of visual interests. He received a BS in Business from Roosevelt University in 1967 and then worked for 35 years in his family’s business. Launching his second career in 2006, Weinberg pursued his true passion of photography. From formal abstraction to narrative portraiture, he hits an array of emotional tones throughout his work. His photographs aim to inspire the viewer to see the world in a more thoughtful way. Weinberg’s photographs have been exhibited at such venues as the Elmhurst Art Museum, Art Chicago, Loyola University Museum of Art, and the Field Museum. He has recently had solo exhibitions at The William & Florence Schmidt Art Center at Southwestern Illinois College, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, and Jean Albano Gallery.

Weinberg also established a contemporary art gallery in 2006, 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.
