Michael Davidson is a photographic artist living and working in the North East of England. His practice uses his knowledge and skills within photography to turn the camera on his own experiences. This cathartic process uses narratives through objects and the sense of place. A sensitivity emerges from the imagery; conveying a melancholic yet nostalgic quality within familiar and era-specific interiors.
His aim is to allow the viewer an insight into a frozen moment of personal history, evoking inflections of moments past. The careful consideration of natural light and composition form part of a universal language allowing the onlooker to instill their own memories within a familiar aesthetic.
“Photography arrests the flow of life and creates memorials to moments, persons and objects.”
L. Haverty-Rugg, Picturing Ourselves
