Harold Davis

Harold Davis is a world-class artist and photographer who has expanded the parameters of his field with imagery, new techniques, and as an author and educator. Honored with the prestigious Photographic Society of America Progress award in 2022 for his development of a unique technique for photographing flowers for transparency, these works have been described as 'ethereal' and having 'a purity and translucence that borders on spiritual.' Davis’s most recent books include Composition & Photography, Creative Garden Photography, and Creative Black & White, all from Rocky Nook. He is also recognized as a master of black and white. The Seattle Times put it this way: 'Harold Davis is the digital black and white equal of Ansel Adams’s traditional wet photography.' In 2022, two of Davis’s floral images were produced as United States postage stamps. A set of five new miscellaneous stamps have been announced for 2024. Click [here for Harold’s blog!](
