All are Welcome
Harold Davis is an internationally known photographer, an artist and bestselling author of many books, the developer of a unique technique for photographing flowers for transparency, a Moab Master, and a Zeiss Ambassador.
Harold Davis was born in Princeton, New Jersey, and grew up on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. When he was five years old, his parents gave him a box camera and he fell in love with photography. Later, he became interested in painting, and studied figurative and abstract painting at the Art Students League, Bennington College, and elsewhere
Davis’s extraordinary imagery builds on the masterworks of the past while embracing revolutionary innovations in photography. He puts it this way: “I believe that advances in the technology and craft of digital photography have created an entirely new medium. My years of contemplation opened my eyes and my heart, and taught me to see more deeply. I use this alchemy of wonder to combine the traditions of painting and photography with new technology.”
When not traveling in search of photographic adventures, Harold can be found at home in his flower garden in Berkeley, California, with his wife Phyllis and their four children.
The topic of His presentation is “Photography As Poetry”
“Photography is narrative, and some photographs are prose while others are poetry. In this presentation, artist and photographer Harold Davis examines how we create imagery that conveys powerful emotion and meditative healing in the context of the rush of modern life, and along the way how his life as a photographer has connected with art and poetics.”
