“In my work I strive to capture the elemental magic in the characteristics of light, textures, colors, and forms in the world around us. Still images allow us to pause the continuous rolling of time and focus our attention on just one thing, seeing more clearly in that frozen moment the beauty that constantly surrounds us.”
Alene J. Davis was formally trained in still photography by the U.S. Army Reserves in 1985. Also a licensed architect, Davis has continued to expand her photographic skills and artistic vision over time. Having traveled to many parts of the world, she finds endless fascination in the tremendous variety inherent in the natural and man-made world. Davis is happy to call the U.S. Pacific Northwest home, and much of her work is inspired by the snow-capped mountains, thundering waterfalls, cold clear rivers, lush temperate rain forests and striking beaches found there.
