Tim Davis Bio

About The Artist

Tim Davis's wry photographs find the sublime in the quotidian. Whether shooting an abandoned pair of sneakers, the streets of a nameless suburb, or the corner of a framed painting in a museum, Davis captures the peripheral, everyday beauty of our daily life.

While a recipient of a 2008 Rome Prize Fellowship, Tim Davis documented Rome's classical ruins and the detritus from tourists that envelop them in relation to contemporary urban life. By doing so, he created a world where time has collapsed. Expanding his scope to include iconic landscapes in other countries, Davis compiled all of the images to create The New Antiquities, his most recent series. A writer and teacher as well as a visual artist, Davis's work has been reviewed by a myriad of publications, including the New Yorker and Art in America.
