Sally Davies has been chronicling the Lower East Side for decades, and as someone who has witnessed the changing landscape of the LES over the years, I was fascinated to see how much remains the same. Sally recently had an exhibition at the Bernarducci Meisel Gallery in NYC titled Photographs of the Lower East Side.
Sally was born in Winnipeg, Canada, graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design, and currently lives and works in New York City. Her photographs have been featured in the New York Times, Lenscratch, the UK Daily Mail, and PDF online. She is the author of the widely acclaimed “McDonalds Happy Meal Project” that went viral in 2010.Her work is in the collections of Harvard Business School, Sarah Jessica Parker, Debra Winger, Michael Patrick King, Jane Holzer, Gary Lightbody Snow Patrol.
