Artist and designer David Storey (BA ’74) keeps close to his photographic roots. From developing film in his mother’s bathtub at age 12 to working as a photojournalist covering lifestyle, politics, and music in the Bay Area, Storey cut his teeth on documentary and fine-art photography. He maintains a commercial design and photography studio and travels annually with Foundry, a globe-trotting workshop of documentary photographers.
