© Lynn Davis (détail)

Lynn Davis débordent largement du concept de « photographe voyageur » forgé à au XXe siécle. L’artiste ne s’intéresse pas à l’exotisme de ses sujets, mais elle recherche en eux la dimension spirituelle par-delà les époques et les cultures, et elle incite l’observateur à entreprendre son propre « pèlerinage » mental. Le message de l’artiste est souligné par le format carré et de grandes dimensions de ses tirages. "Pour l’œil humain, le rectangle horizontal constitue le cadrage naturel, il correspond à notre champ visuel. Quand on force les images à entrer dans un carré, les proportions ont une importance accrue, et les détails ressortent davantage."

Lynn Davis est née en 1944 à Minneapolis. Honorés par de nombreuses expositions dans le monde entier, ses travaux font partie de prestigieuses collections, dont le Museum of Modern Art de New York, le L.A. County Museum, à Los Angeles, le J. Paul Getty Museum, à Malibu, le Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art ou encore le Houston Museum of Fine Art. L’artiste vit et travaille à New York.
