David Burnett at Xposure

David Burnett will take you on an incredible journey back to the Golden Age of Photography. He has covered every Summer Olympic Games since 1984 – from Los Angeles to Seoul, Barcelona, Atlanta, Sydney, Athens, Beijing and London. He also made two forays into the Winter Games: in 2002 in his hometown of Salt Lake City and in Sochi in 2014. His acclaimed sports photographs have been highly awarded by the World Press Photo Foundation, the International Olympic Committee and the China News Photographers’ Association, among others.

When you’ve lived through the golden age of photojournalism, there’s no point in being nostalgic.

Burnett launched his career as an intern at Time magazine in 1967 before covering the Vietnam War for Life magazine. David received the prestigious Robert Capa Award from the Overseas Press Club in 1974. He has thrice been a juror in the prestigious World Press Photo contest in Amsterdam, chairing the board in both 1999 and 2011.  In 2007 he taught at the World Press Photo Joop Swart MasterClass, leading ten emerging photographers in their quest for new direction.
