David Luraschi (1981) is a French-American based in Paris, France. He holds a BA in Film Studies from San Francisco State University, California and a MA in Art Direction from Ecal, Switzerland. His work has been exhibited in San Francisco, Lausanne, Paris, Vancouver, London and Mallorca. His commissioned work with ECAL led him to design a series of vases for Baccarat with Ana Varela, produce a photo series for the Fondation Nestlé pour l’art and photograph the Cooper Union students for a tribute publication on Herb Lubalin. Luraschi’s editorial work can be found in magazines and newspapers including SZ in Germany, the San Francisco Chronicle, Vault in Australia, All Gone in France, Of the Afternoon in the UK, The New Order Magazine in Japan. Drawing inspiration from popular culture and ancient myths, Luraschi develops a narrative approach to photography. He works within portraiture, landscape, and still life—traditional genres, which he reinterprets. Today we take a look at David’s series titled Georgia.
These photographs were taken during a thanksgiving trip with my friend Will Govus.
Will’s parents live on a farm in Ellijay, Georgia, a former Cherokee ground known for it’s apples. During my visit we crossed three state lines, drove around the Appalachian Trail, the Smoky Mountains, met a local wizard and camped on Standing Indian Mountain. The highlight was at the Atlanta airport when Will picked me up, he had two pygmy goats stomping around in the back seat of his car.
