Dreaming Difference is a visual treat of a book… a celebration of the work of a much respected photographer and educator and a timely reminder of Williams’ key contribution to photography in Scotland.

Ben Harman, Director of Stills


I own two of David’s photographs which I endlessly enjoy. His personal humanity is communicated through his imagery, which overcomes the technical to reveal the soul beneath.

Dame Helen Mirren


To enter the world of David’s photography is to enter a world of visual poetry and the realm of the imagination. His restless search for a form of images that convey his emotional and metaphysical engagement with picture making is compelling, and guides us towards a new appreciation of what photography might be… It is a book above all, about the beauty of the image and providing sustenance for the soul.

Professor John Kippin
