aCurator is pleased to begin a new year with an artist whose work I have admired for some time. Jen Davis
' photographs have been widely exhibited since she graduated with her BA in 2002 (she subsequently gained an MFA in Photography from Yale University School of Art in 2008), and I have seen them in many, varied locations, most recently as part of FlakPhoto's 100 Portraits
series. Brian Clamp
introduced me to her photographs some time ago. It wasn't until I met her at Aperture's Snap! Benefit
* in November, that I worked up courage to press her about a feature. She kindly pulled the images together during the holidays and here we are. Thanks to mutual friend, photographer Adam Krause
, for endorsing me.
