David Simpson

b. 1931

David Simpson, photographer, is represented in the Art Gallery of South Australia, his subjects including HM Queen Elizabeth II, Don Bradman, David Gulpilil and Sir Mark and Lady Oliphant. He co-authored several children’s books with Colin Thiele, including Ballander Boy (1979), Little Tom Little (1981) and Tanya and Trixie (1980). In 2011, aged 80, he was given a suspended sentence for possession of child pornography. As a consequence, his eldest son destroyed much of his photographic archive.
