Davin Ellicson  born 1978.
Since 2000 Davin has been transfixed by the Eastern European country of Romania. Immediately after finishing college he even went and lived for a year with peasants in a village in the Carpathian mountains lost somewhere in the 18th century. The photographs from this period became his first major project: Maramures. Today, Davin works between New York and Bucharest, a beguiling little known EU capital that is in the midst of dramatic change and cultural regeneration after Ceausescu. An ongoing series on the city comprises his next book project.
Davin’s work has appeared in such publications as Der Spiegel, The New York Times, ART and The Chronicle of Higher Education. He has worked with the NGO’s Ovidiu Rom and IREX. Ellicson’s photography projects have been exhibited worldwide including at The Phodar Photography Biennial in Bulgaria, The Takashimaya Department Store in Tokyo, Japan and at The East West Gallery in Vienna, Austria. Awards and honors include two honorable mentions in Jen Bekman’s Hey, Hot Shot! contest, the portfolio award at The 2009 Phodar Photography Biennial and a Larson Fellowship from Carleton College to photograph Saami Reindeer Herders.
Davin is represented by the Anzenberger Agency in Vienna, Austria.
