Art and social justice converge at David Weinberg Photography

Back in the late 1990s, David Weinberg sold his stake in his family's business, the automotive parts manufacturer Fel-Pro, after 35 years. Following a few uninspiring years consulting in the industry, he decided to give it all up to pursue his passion for photography, opening David Weinberg Photography in 2006. Over the last decade Weinberg has shifted the River North gallery's focus from serving as an exhibit space for his own work to hosting broadly contemporary commercial work—and last fall the photographer’s ongoing commitment to social justice issues inspired him to begin displaying only community-oriented work that comes out of a collaboration with a nonprofit organization.
