David Brookover The Road

Photograph by David Brookover (http://www.davidbrookover.com/)

David Brookover was born in Kansas in 1954. In 1986, David moved to Japan where he decided to fulfill his artistic yearning and took up photographing the beauty and wonder of his new surroundings. As the saying goes, he never looked back. For the next 15 years he studied Japanese art, visited world class exhibitions and took in as many photography shows as he could while travelling back and forth to the U.S. building up his portfolio. To this day the influence of Japan, traditional Japanese art and its history continues to lay the foundation for David`s own unique style. His break came in the 90’s when he began photographing for Fuji Photo Film Co. Ltd in Tokyo. Later he would do multiple exhibitions in Tokyo showing his diverse work. Through Fuji Film his work is shown around the world. In the spring of 2001, David moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming where he opened The Brookover Gallery. This spacious 3000 foot gallery showcases the very best work of this artist in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Here you can view over 100 large, beautifully displayed fine art color and black and white photographs.

The Brookover Gallery is proud to announce the new book by David Brookover titled THE ROAD.
