GUY DAVIES ︎ SILVER LININGS
Silver Linings, is a photographic series exploring the positives which have come from being in lockdown during the Covid 19 Pandemic.
We use the term silver lining when we want to emphasize the hopeful side of a situation that might seem gloomy on the surface.
The common expression "every cloud has a silver lining" means even the worst events or situations have some positive aspects.
Isolation has created a situation where many families are connecting on a deeper level to what they were before.
Quality family time, reconnection, living in the moment, slower pace, back to basics, the simple life; these have been my silver linings during the ISO lockdown period.

Artworks lined our family home where I grew up, oil paintings, pencil sketches, watercolours and lino-cuts. Most done by family members set amongst the occasional Norman Lindsay piece.
I had little idea at the time what the significance of being surrounded by art at such a young age would have on my life & career.
Once I was introduced to photography, I knew it was the perfect creative process for me.
Learning to see light and how it can be crafted to convey an atmosphere or an emotion totally changed my perspective. I wanted to capture what I felt and saw, drawn to finding the unexpected beauty around me.
20 years later, the same things inspire me and keep me hungry to create powerful, authentic work.
I love the collaborative process working with a team of creative like-minded people. I've been very fortunate to work with some of the best Creative Directors, Editors and Stylists around.
