DAVID STARK WILSON, born in Berkeley, California, has been a building designer for over twenty years and a photographer since the age of seventeen. His buildings have won awards from the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association, Sunset, and Metropolitan Home Magazine. His interests in design and photography converged during his back-road encounters with the austere agricultural buildings of California's Central Valley and resulted in his first book, Structures of Utility, published by Heyday Books in 2003.
An avid mountaineer, David began to photograph mountain landscapes at an early age. With his newest book, Above All, David brings his unique vision to his photographs of the highest peaks of California. David lives in Berkeley with his wife, Stacia Cronin, and children, Chase and Kai. For more of his work, see davidstarkwilson.com.
