Davis-Orton Gallery is presenting the work of two photographers: Robert Moran and David Welch.
Robert Moran is a freelance photographer living in a small town on the coast of Maine. His interest in photography began at the age of twelve when his parents bought him a Super 8 Movie Camera for Christmas. A few years later, he bought his first 35 mm camera. After studying art at the University of Maine, Robert started and ran several businesses over the course of twenty years. During that period he found the time to pursue personal photography projects on his trips to Africa, Asia, and the South Pacific. Robert’s most recent undertakings have taken him to Argentina, Antarctica, and the Faroe Islands.
David Welch is a fine art photographer based on the island of Martha’s Vineyard. His work explores social issues, using large-format photography steeped in conceptual influences from art history and economic theory. His work has been widely published and exhibited both nationally and abroad. David was named one of the Magenta Foundation’s Flash Forward winners for 2012 and in 2011 he was selected as one of Photolucida’s Critical Mass top 50 photographers.
