APA San Diego and MOPA are proud to welcome award-winning photographer Barbara Davidson. Join us for a special one-night event including a photographic talk and slide presentation at the Museum of Photographic Arts on Thursday, September 12th, 2019.
Barbara Davidson is a three-time Pulitzer Prize and Emmy award-winning photojournalist who is best known for her work on victims of gang violence in Los Angeles.
Barbara worked as a staff photographer at the Los Angeles Times until 2017, where she spent much of her time photographing women and children trapped in a culture of poverty and guns. In her decade at the L.A. Times, she also covered the San Bernardino terrorist attack, which earned a Staff Pulitzer Prize in 2016 for Spot News. In 2014, she was awarded Pictures of The Year International’s award for Newspaper Photographer of the Year, for the second time, in part for her project on solitary confinement at Corcoran’s men’s prison in California.
Barbara mastered her story-telling approach through multiple assignments over two decades and across 52 countries covering war, humanitarian crises and the human condition for the Los Angeles Times, the Dallas Morning News and the Washington Times.
Early in her career, she traveled with the Red Cross to cover the end of the Bosnian War. Her work since then has taken her to the Second Intifada in Israel as well as wars in Iraq, Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. She has also covered natural disasters, including Hurricane Katrina as a member of a team that won a Pulitzer in Spot News Photography in 2006 for the Dallas Morning News, and more recently covering Hurricane Harvey for the New York Times.
Since leaving the L.A. Times, Barbara has served as lead creative and director of Volvo’s SC60 Moments, an innovative campaign that used the car’s safety camera system to create a photo exhibition. Photographs from the shoot were curated in an exhibition, which premiered in London, and the accompanying “making of” film has attracted more than 1.5 million views.
Most recently, Davidson was awarded the 2019 Guggenheim fellowship and is currently making portraits of gunshot survivors, around the nation, using an 8 X 10 film camera.
Barbara graduated from Concordia University in her hometown of Montreal, Canada, with a BFA in Photography and Film Studies.
