Davis’ black and white photographs of the human form explore light and shadow, selective focus and the use of a mirror to expand perspective. Her fascination with abstraction moved her to focus on the simple features of the body — the line of a fingertip or the arch of a back. “My photographs are a culminating body of work that provokes intrigue in abstract features and the natural beauty of the human body,” she says.
