Hand-Altered Polaroid Photographs
Cynthia Davis
Celebrated photographer-artist Cynthia Davis captures the spirit of Ann Arbor with her unique pictures


If you've never seen a Cynthia Davis photograph before, you'll be surprised and delighted by her evocative hand-altered Polaroid photography, a process the award-winning artist has used exclusively for twenty years.

Davis brings her vision of the world to Ann Arbor as she captures the spirit and beauty of the town that's home to Zingerman's, the Fleetwood Diner, Nickels Arcade, and the University of Michigan. Here, Ann Arbor takes on a contemplative, at times moody, look through Davis's unique medium, a method of manipulating the gel-like chemicals in Polaroid film while it's still developing.

The result is a cross between the realism of photography and the impressionistic quality of oil painting that gives both alumni and townies a view of their favorite local landmarks like they've never seen before.

A must-have for both Michigan and Ann Arbor fans everywhere!

Cynthia Davis has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries, universities, and museums, as well as major art festivals around the country, and has won over 100 major awards. She lives in Ann Arbor.
