David Scriven lives in Little Portugal, a Toronto neighbourhood where he started a daily practice of capturing and sharing photographic images of urban life in the streets and laneways. He now works primarily with film, using cameras inherited from his father and reconnecting with a straight photography undergraduate course he took thirty years ago. Grounded in the tradition of documentary photography, Scriven's images have a restrained style and a fond eye, allowing the viewer to recognize often fleeting images from their everyday experience.

He is a member of Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography in Toronto.
