Bill Davison | About
Photography and work in and around the printing industry have occupied most of my adult life. My personal images span several genres but I particularly respect abstraction, the human figure, and portraiture. Regardless of genre, I always embrace ambiguity. As such, the viewer should be an active participant in the process.

Recently, I've become involved with more formal portraiture and, as a result, studio-based work. The ability to "construct" lighting environments is engaging and intriguing after so many years of relying on only natural light. In portraits, I like unadorned work that represents people authentically without distraction or artifice. The stark is often more revealing of the subject.

This studio approach is beginning to extend into the figure and still life work, too. I'll be adding more new work in this area soon. Above all, I hope that these images will "reward the careful observer".*
