American, born 1978.

Since 2000 Davin has been transfixed by the Eastern European country of Romania. Immediately after finishing college he lived for a year with subsistence farmers in a village in the Carpathian mountains suspended somewhere in the 18th century. The photographs from this period became his first major project: “Peasants” which is due out as a book in 2014. Today, Davin works between New York City 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 the second part of a trilogy of works on Romania. In 2011, Davin began “Paradox Romania”, a wide-ranging road trip around Romania looking at the country’s post-communist evolution.

Davin’s work has appeared in such publications as The New Yorker, The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, Der Spiegel, L’Espresso, ART, OneWorld, AFAR and The Chronicle of Higher Education. He regularly photographs and produces multimedia for the NGO’s Ovidiu Rom, IREX (International Research and Exchanges Board) and Not For Sale in Romania.

Ellicson’s work is included in two books: “East” which includes 20 years of photography by Anzenberger Agency photographers in Eastern Europe and beyond as well as “This Day of Change”, a group project by Courrier Japon on the day of Barack Obama’s inauguration. 132 photographers captured life around the world and English and Japanese versions of the book were published.

Davin’s photography has been exhibited worldwide including at The Phodar Photography Biennial in Bulgaria, The Takashimaya Store in Tokyo, Japan and at The East West Gallery in Vienna, Austria. In June 2012 his Maramures work was included in the Lumix Festival for Young Photojournalism in Hannover, Germany. Awards and honors include a grant from The Romanian Cultural Institute in Bucharest, two honorable mentions in Jen Bekman’s Hey, Hot Shot! contest, the portfolio award at The 2009 Phodar Photography Biennial and a Larson Fellowship to photograph Saami Reindeer Herders in Sweden.

Davin is represented by the Anzenberger Agency in Vienna, Austria.
