Keith F. Davis (b. 1952) began working in black & white photography in the early 70's. While an intern at the George Eastman House in 1979, he took a course at Rochester Institute of Technology introducing him to color photography. After graduating, Davis moved to Kansas City and began working primarily in 4x5" color for the next several years. Davis’ vivid images capture both architecture and art, as well as landscape, from the Temples of Democracy, his state capital series, to The Uffizi in Florence and the outskirts of Giza.
Davis completed an MA in Art History at the University of New Mexico in 1979, specializing in the history of photography. He held a research internship at the George Eastman House, in Rochester, New York, in 1978-79, before beginning his association with Hallmark Cards, Inc., Kansas City, Missouri, as Fine Art Program Director. In addition to organizing numerous exhibitions, he has written and lectured extensively on nineteenth and twentieth century photography. Davis is currently Senior Curator of Photography at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, Missouri.
