Here is something to make you smile, trawling the web I came across the work of Carli Davidson. She is a US photographer with a wicked sense of humour and a great gallery of images. The ones that first caught my eye were from a series called Shake, see the pictures, you will understand. Refreshing to see a photographer with such an individual vision. Carli works a lot with animals as subjects and clearly gets the most out of her subjects, the old adage ‘never work with animals or children’ does not apply to Carli
“Carli Davidson is an internationally recognized photographer. She has a background in both commercial and documentary photography, as well as over 7 years experience as an animal trainer and caretaker. Her love of both art and animals led her to work as an animal care technician and photographer for the Oregon Zoo, as well as a volunteer photographer for local animal rescues.
Her photography has been featured in Photo District News, The Atlantic, The Times UK, STERN Germany’s VIEW Magazine, Portland Monthly, The Village Voice, The Oregonian, The Portland Tribune, and numerous Zoo publications. She is also a regular photo contributor to Andrew Sullivan’s The Daily Dish.
Carli has taught for the Newspace Center for Photography, and The Oregon Zoo, and has spoken at numerous institutions including The Art Institute, and The Evergreen State College.” Do go and see more see more of Carli’s work on her site here you will smile a while
