Tim Davis

"I enter the classroom as an evangelist for the idea that photography is the most complex, important form of communication in our culture, and that it takes energy, will, humor, pathos, research and legwork to learn to use the medium effectively."

Tim is an artist, writer, and musician working in many fields. His photographs have been exhibited around the world and are in the collections of dozens of museums including the Metropolitan, Whitney, Brooklyn, Guggenheim and the Walker.

His new book of photographs and essays, I’m Looking Through You, will be published by Aperture in 2020. At the same time a large catalog of his recent show at the Tang Museum, When We Are Dancing (I Get Ideas) will be published by the museum, with an essay by Luc Sante. His own writings on photography appear in many art catalogs and publications such as Cabinet, Bomb, Aperture, and  Photograph. He is also a musician and songwriter. His first record “It’s OK To Hate Yourself” is streamable on Spotify and available on his website.
