Chris Davis grew up on the north shore of Chicago – leaving to attend Parsons School of Design, where he studied photography. After graduation, he went to assist full time for Hiro, and, then worked full time for James Nachtwey as his studio manager. Since then, Davis has worked on a variety of projects both commercial and editorial. This work is from his series, Safari, which was shot in South Africa. Davis writes: ‘As I sat in the Land Rover and looked around, it all seemed fake – like I was in front of the dioramas at the Museum of Natural History. Even the animals appeared to be posing’. Davis is based in Brooklyn.
