Description

Beginning in 2002, Akron-born Jen Davis turned the camera on herself, making a probing and unembellished personal diary. Photographed primarily in her home, the images seek to reveal personal and private aspects of her daily life that are reconstructed for the camera. Standing with her back to the viewer, lost in thought, Davis skillfully used light and shade as well as her immediate environment to enhance the presentation of her personal narrative, which she has described as a “process of self-exploration . . . finding my voice and recognizing my actions and insecurities.” Gift of Friends of Photography 2008.87
