  Artist's Statement:
Three years ago, David took it upon himself to pursue his photography professionally. Using a Nikon digital SLR, he was able to use both old and new lenses that he collected. He has recently added a 4x5 film view camera to his arsenal. Aimone notes, “I'm interested in old and new approaches, equipment, and processes… In the end, however, you aim the camera, push the button, and see if you're rewarded. The outcome is always the reward.” Aimone’s subject matter is often a product of his everyday life and travels. He ventures out on foot or bike with the intention of discovering things that draw his attention. But when one studies his photographs, it becomes obvious that the subject matter is secondary to his innate understanding of composition and arrangement. His work for many years as a musical composer corresponds to the rhythms and sequences of his compositions. Aimone offers up these thoughts from a recent interview: The joy of photography is creating something beautiful, interesting, or capturing something the eye doesn't usually see. Taking pictures can either distract you from the present moment, or put you directly in the appreciation of it. The joy for me comes with the latter.
