David Gross is terrific. He skillfully designed, coded and produced a website and iPad app for my multi-media project on the Iraq war. It’s hard to imagine working as easily and efficiently with anyone else. He’s unique — a photographer who codes, a coder with a designer’s eye. His heart as well as his skills go into every project he works on.
David is one of the most creative and hard-working people I’ve collaborated with. He understands clients’ needs but always seeks to push the boundaries to find a new and exciting solution. I’ve known him since 1990’s Prague…and he is completely wacky and fun.
He is a man of exceptional talent, integrity and singular spirit. He personifies the humanity of image reporting and I am in no doubt that his work will serve as an everlasting monument to the incongruous dichotomy of desperation and salvation that is the very soul of mass disaster and genocide investigations…. I have such complete and total confidence in the decency and dignity of this man that I would never hesitate to give him access to the most sensitive areas in which we work. Whilst some of his images must by necessity be gruesome and depressive, so many others are so poignantly touching and beautiful that he manages to achieve that ethereal balance between portraying the worst of human nature alongside our indomitable spirit of hope.
I would like to recommend David Gross as a dedicated, intelligent, creative and knowledgeable photojournalist, someone who has put in the extra effort to understand his subjects and go beyond the surface. … His photography is first rate, both in aesthetics and journalistic quality. He captures the emotions and moments of a story while also addressing the tangible issues.
