Jack Davison (b.1990) studied English Literature at Warwick University but spent most of the time experimenting with cameras. Since the age of 14, he has continuously photographed those around him. He lives in London and works for numerous publications including New York Times Magazine, M Le Monde, Luncheon, Double & British Vogue, but spends most of his time shooting for his ongoing personal work. He had his first solo exhibition, Revisiting Pictures, at the Foam Amsterdam in 2016. ⁠

With deep shadows and tight framing, Davison's images have an unmistakably cinematic quality. His work shifts from staged, meticulous editorial setups to simple everyday occurrences, infused with mystery and depth.⁠

Two recurring motifs in Davison’s work are the hand and the eye. They represent a dynamic tension within Davison’s work, of seeing versus feeling, or the threshold between perception and imagination.  Relying heavily on chiaroscuro and the power of photography to obscure as well as reveal, Davison’s unique, crafted approach to image-making oscillates from crisp, sharp details into dissolving mirages – the world inverted and submerged.
