David Young is a self-taught entomologist as well as a macro photographer. His combined skills are evident in the photos displayed in the Gallery and are also included in a 2015 calendar titled “Bugs and Flowers” . The calendar is available for purchase from the Disability Enterprise Foundation and his pictures may be purchased directly from the artist through his email address which is firstname.lastname@example.org.
After traumatic surgery for a cleft palate as a child, David developed mental issues that led to his being institutionalized from age 7 to age 27. He is totally self taught, having never spent a day in formal education. He managed not only to learn to read and write on his own, but to become an expert in the fields of entomology and photography.
