David Parise

Photography, video and film have been David's tools to express life "the way I see it" ever since childhood. He started my visual passion with the wind-up Revere 8mm film camera my father purchased after returning from WWII along with a trusty Brownie Box camera.

His latest project has been photographing Vintage Barbie and Ken dolls in their original 1960's outfits. It began in 2009 while he was living in Miami Beach after spotting Vintage Barbie and Ken dolls in a fashion book on Lincoln Road. He thought Miami Beach would be a perfect backdrop. From the beautiful beaches to the coolest vintage hotels in the world. He began selling them at the world-famous Antique and Collectible Market in Miami, people loved them and they soon landed him in galleries from New York to LA. Eventually, he expanded the portfolio to include New York and Los Angeles. He has always had an interest in fashion and worked in the New York Garment Industry for many years.
