Palmer Davis creates photographs that explore the mysterious and the magical in the everyday. His pictures evoke a sense of place and time and tell a story. Whether the setting is natural or man-made, an expansive landscape or an intimate space, it is always a personal interpretation, viewed through a prism of memory, dream, myth and desire. His photographic eye has been developed over a thirty-year career as an award-winning advertising creative director at Young & Rubicam, Ally & Gargano, Darcy Masius Benton & Bowles and other Madison Avenue agencies. He studied photography and filmmaking at Hampshire College, California College of Arts and Crafts, N.Y.U. and The International Center of Photography, where he is now a member of the faculty. Davis lives in New York with his wife and three sons.

Photographer #431: Darcy Padilla

Darcy Padilla, 1965, USA, is a photojournalist and documentary photographer. Her career as a freelance photographer started after completing 12 internships at daily newspapers as The New York Times and The Washington Post. Since then she covered stories in Cuba and Haiti, on Aids in Prison and the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, just to name a few. Her most acclaimed body of work is The Julie Project. This long-term project is the story of a woman called Julie Baird. Eighteen years Darcy followed and photographed the story of AIDS, drug abuse, abusive relationships, poverty and death. Julie died on September 27th, 2010 at the age of 36, after having lived a turbulant life in which she gave birth to six children of whom the first five were taken away from her. It is an impressive, heartbreaking project with a dramatic, yet expected ending. The series rightfully received the W. Eugene Smith Award for Humanistic Photography in 2010. Amongst other awards for her work is the John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship for the work she did photographing residents of transient hotels in one of the poorest neighborhoods in San Francisco. All of the following images are from The Julie Project.
