Jeff Davenport is a Los Angeles based photographer. After graduating the from University of Colorado at Boulder with Film and Art History degrees, he focused most of his creative output as a musician in Denver. Inspired by the vivid terrain and its expanding arts scene, Jeff moved to Los Angeles in 2016 to concentrate on his photography. Jeff works primarily in urban landscape and portraiture, often emphasizing the plasticity of color and perception.
Nights is a collection of street photographs shot over the last four years during late night walks through the neighborhoods of Los Angeles and beyond. These photographs explore the sublime in the nondescript corners of the everyday.
Working only with the predetermined light of city planners, business and home owners, the work reveals how the transactional light of security and safety can transcend into the fantastic and the extraordinary. Influenced by directors like Michael Mann, the painters of the Ashcan School, Richard Estes’ photorealism and the filmic mega-productions of Gregory Crewdson, Nights is a homage to our inner lives and imaginations — stills of the films playing in our heads.
