Davis, Lynn Ann

Permanent URI for this collection

Born and raised on the island of O`ahu, Lynn Ann Davis’ work in photography, archives and preservation has been defined by landscape (people and islands), and struggling to understanding the “paradise factor”. She is currently the Head of the Preservation Department at the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa Library, and directing much of her energy to develop resources to meet challenges to care for cultural heritage materials in Pacific island communities including Hawai`i. As a photographer and historian, she has pondered issues about photography since 1973 when she started her career at Bishop Museum in Honolulu.
