Tim H. Davis
An Evolving City
Boston is changing more rapidly than at any other time in the last century. Working at Boston’s planning and development review agency, I have a front seat to seeing these conversions; rapid growth causes strains in existing neighborhoods while simultaneously creating entirely new neighborhoods. An Evolving City provides a glimpse into these changes, juxtaposing what is being lost—auto shops, warehouses, and parking garages— with the uses, forms, and textures of new urban development.
Tim H. Davis is a Boston based photographer who was born and raised in the American south. His fascination with the rapid growth of Atlanta inspired him to seek his BA in Geography and Urban Studies at Macalester College (St. Paul, MN). Graduate studies in urban geography brought Tim to Massachusetts in 1990, where he began his 25+ year career in affordable housing. Tim is still fascinated with cities, with a particular interest in photographing textures and forms, as well as juxtapositions of the old and new. In addition, he has become increasingly interested in sacred spaces.
Tim has taken photography classes at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and at the Griffin Museum of Photography, and participated in a photography workshop in Cuba. In addition to his BA, Tim holds an MPA from the Harvard Kennedy School of Government.
