David Flood is an image-maker working between Finland and Ireland. He completed a practice-led MA at IADT Dún Laoghaire in 2018 on the role of the image in the transformation of urban topographies in the context of globalised production and neoliberal governance. David also holds a qualification in Visual Education and while residing in Ireland has taught photography in the Gallery of Photography and Dún Laoghaire College of Further Education in Dublin. David currently teaches photography courses at the Espoo Adult Education Centre in Tapiola near Helsinki, Finland.

David started his professional career as a software developer working for large global based corporations and that experience is a key influence in his work, which has been exhibited in various places in both Ireland and Finland. David also does extensive academic research into his projects and is interested in how the photographic image is deployed to support certain views of the world through ideology. He maintains a blog on much of his research here.

David is represented by The Copper House Gallery in Dublin, Ireland where you can view a collection of his work.
