Palmer Davis

Website - PalmerDavisPhotography.com

Palmer Davis makes pictures that explore the mysterious and the magical in the everyday. His photographs evoke a sense of place and a moment in time. They tell stories and reveal metaphors. Whether the setting is natural or man-made, an expansive panorama or an intimate glimpse, it is always a personal interpretation—viewed through a prism of memory, wonder, dream, myth or desire. Palmer’s photographic eye was honed over a twenty five-year career as a Madison Avenue advertising creative director. His first photography class at age sixteen was a transformative experience that started him on a lifelong artistic journey. He studied photography at Hampshire College and the International Center of Photography, where he is now a member of the faculty. Palmer is widely exhibited and collected, most recently by the New Britain Museum of American Art for their permanent collection. He is a fine art photographer and teacher who lives in New York with his wife and three sons.
