John Davies
John Davies (born in Sedgefield, County Durham, England,1949 and now living in Liverpool) is internationally known for the lucidity with which he has tackled the rural and urban landscape through his refined B&W photographs. He is very much a narrative landscape photographer, interested, even in his 'purest' landscapes in telling visual stories about process, change, transformation.
Davies began in the mid-Seventies with a prolonged analysis of the "wild and natural" landscapes of the British Isles ( Mist Mountain Water Wind, 1985 & Skylines, 1993 ). In 1981 he began an articulate documentation of urban Britain, concentrating on the changes provoked by the industrial and post-industrial landscape (A Green & Pleasant Land, 1986). These photographs were shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York & other galleries.
During the mid-Eighties he started working in Western Europe on a variety of architectural and environmental projects.
In 2000 he started the Metropolis Project, to investigate cities in the UK.
