American, born 1978.

Davin Ellicson 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 the fall of Nicolae Ceausescu.

His first major project is Tarani based on the year he lived with farmers in the village of Valeni in the Carpathian mountains. An ongoing series on the city of Bucharest comprises the second part of his trilogy of photographic works about Romania. In 2011, Ellicson began "Paradox Romania", a wide-ranging road trip around Romania looking at the country's post-communist evolution.

Ellicson'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 three NGO's, Ovidiu Rom, International Research and Exchanges Board and Not For Sale in Romania.

Ellicson's work appears in two photographic books: "East" which includes 20 years of photography by Anzenberger Agency photographers in Eastern Europe and Asia as well as "This Day of Change", a group project by Courrier Japon. 130 acclaimed photographers captured life around the world on the day of Barak Obama's first inauguration.

Ellicson's photography has been exhibited worldwide including at The Phodar Photography Biennial in Pleven, Bulgaria, The Takashimaya Store in Tokyo, Japan, at The East West Gallery in Vienna, Austria and is in numerous private collections. In June 2012 his Maramures work appeared at the Lumix Festival in Hannover, Germany. Awards and honors include a grant from The Romanian Cultural Institute in Bucharest, 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.
