Naomi Davis


Naomi Davis is an experimental film photographer living in the beautiful desert of Arizona. She focuses on Southwest landscapes, shaping images with the more “malleable” aspects of photography – double exposures, varied film types (including large format), and other alternative techniques.

Naomi’s style is loose and painting-like, imparting an abstract, dreamy quality to the grain. As a result, the print provokes in the viewer a nostalgia for landscapes yet to be visited.

Her art and life bleed together:

Being based out of the bottom of the Grand Canyon (literally, I live and work at the bottom of one of the world’s most incredible natural wonders) allows me to be in the middle of the wilderness at all times. I try to keep a camera or sketchbook on me at all times wherever I am; backpacking, driving across vast deserts, or relaxing in my backyard.
