About David "Snoutt" Gutierrez
Born and Raised in Los Angeles now living in Brooklyn, NY.
My first experience with a camera was a direct result of joining the US Army at the age of 19. This was the first time I had been anywhere out side of Southern California and I wanted to document everything. The Army afforded me the opportunity to live, work, and travel with people from all walks of life, this was something I had never experienced nor thought I would. The places and stories I encountered were simply fascinating, I was overwhelmed with curiosity and I wanted to know more. This is where my love for travel and documentary photography truly flourished.
What is SNOUTT about?
Well, it has a few meanings, first and foremost its homage to my parents who had me at the age of 16 and showed me what hard work is about. Secondly, it's a thank you to my mother who blessed with with the nose we share, that I have some what grown into. Last but not least, I love to document life and many times it requires me to dig deep and stick my "SNOUTT" where it doesn't necessarily belong to tell a the whole story truthfully and objectively.
