Happy Birthday Dave LeBeck

What would've been your 60th birthday.
Rest in peace, my friend. Your are truly missed and loved.


  1. "Give sorrow words. The grief that does not speak
    whispers the o'er-fraught heart, and bids it break."
    — William Shakespeare

  2. Lovely b/w. Why do all the great photographers leave early :(

  3. I never had the pleasure to meet David in person, but I corresponded with him through his work for Carrie Leigh's NUDE. I was cleaning my e-mail files last week and came across some of our "conversations." It made me feel sad but also grateful that his work was given international exposure. I know it made him happy.

    Life is too brief, Merrique. Stay true to yourself and continue to enjoy each day xxoo

  4. I still can't believe he's gone. through deviantart he was the single most encouraging photographer with whom I'd communicated since I left college, and by far the most accomplished. Rest in beautiful light & shadow David. Merrique, my condolences, as ever, to you.

  5. OMG ! I had no idea ! I've been out of touch with Dave and you for so long now . What a great guy he was ! Always wanted to meet him , sit in a bar out in Korea Town and talk abour photography . So sad . Sorry to hear of all of our loss Merrique . :( <3
