> DESCRIPTION

This is Grant Davidson’s first solo exhibition at the gallery which features his most recent collection entitled “Lights”, images of and about artificial sources of light, opening a captivating window into the most utterly basic elements of photography.

Davidson explains: “In this body of work, I exploit the mechanical advantages of photography to investigate ethereal environments often obscured by extreme radiance. Here artificial lights inscribe themselves on film as both light source and subject, unifying the act of exposure with the object observed.” Often working with traditional, antiquated equipment, Davidson displays an archaic fidelity not often seen in contemporary photography, wherein the recent past becomes a means to examine the present.

Grant Davidson completed his BFA in 2006 at the University of the South and his M.F.A. in Photography at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2008. He has exhibited at The Lab in San Francisco, the Creative Center for Photography in Hollywood, California and at the Nabit Art Center, in Tennessee.
