Born in Innsbruck, Austria in 1998, Uzochukwu moved to Luxembourg at the age of six. At thirteen, he began making self-portraits and fostering connections with like-minded creatives via the online platform Flickr, becoming part of a community that would allow him to create easily during the subsequent years. 

 In 2014, soon after moving to Brussels, he was named photographer of the year by Eyeem; shortly after, he was chosen for Flickr’s inaugural ‘20 under 20’. The following year, he was picked as one of Adobe Photoshop’s ‘25 under 25’.

He graduated from high school in 2016.

 His work has been published in countless magazines and online articles, including Photo (France), Vogue Netherlands, Vogue.it, BLINK Magazine, Hunger, Wonderland, Numéro (France), the Huffington Post, My Modern Met, BBC Brazil, Metal Magazine, i-D Online and Dazed Digital. 

 David Uzochukwu is represented by Iconoclast Image and Galerie Number 8.
