Catherine Edelman Gallery is pleased to present Place in the Sun, our first exhibition of works by scott b. davis. The show opens November 6 and runs through December 31, 2020. 

There will be an opening reception on Friday, November 6, from 12:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Since the inception of the camera, photographers have been drawn to the majestic landscapes throughout the Southwest, attempting to capture the land’s unimaginable splendor. scott b. davis (b. 1971, Silver Spring, MD) is one of these artists drawn to such settings, bearing witness to nature’s beauty and its nuances. His ongoing search for remote places is what sets his work apart.

scott b. davis works with large format cameras and 19th c. printing processes (palladium paper negatives and platinum/palladium positive prints) to create one-of-a-kind photographs that are as gentle and meditative as the places in which he photographs. Whether focusing his camera on the copper mountains in Arizona, a small crevasse in a distant peak, a sandbar in the Anza-Borrego Desert, or brittlebush seeds scattered on the ground, scott b. davis’s artwork captures the simple, subtle pleasures of silence. In a world full of immense noise and countless distractions, it’s important to be reminded of the calm that exists when one takes the road less traveled.
