Eddie Davis, photographer
Photographer Eddie Davis of Louisville uses his camera as a tool for social activism. The son of parents who were also avid shutterbugs, Davis is a car salesman by vocation but seldom misses a march, protest, or demonstration in Louisville. Over the years, he has taken pictures of police shootings and numerous protests and other forms of public social expression. Though credentialed, he has even been mistaken for one of his subjects and arrested and jailed.
His work was recently the subject of an exhibition at the Braden Center, a Louisville anti-racism organization, and is archived at the Ekstrom Library at the University of Louisville.
