David Scriven is a lens-based emerging artist living in Toronto. Using cameras inherited from his father and grounded in documentary photography, his photographs have explored decay and renewal in the urban ecosystem. Common Ground, a new and ongoing project, grew out of ancestry research started during the COVID-19 pandemic. He has exhibited work at the MacKendrick Community Gallery, Artscape Youngplace, and Gallery 44 Centre of Contemporary Photography in Toronto, as well as ViewPoint Gallery in Halifax. In November 2021, he self-published a photo book entitled Alexandra Park that captured a year in the complete demolition and rebuild of the Toronto west-end community housing project.Follow on Instagram @davidalbertscriven
