Davon Clark is a Philadelphia-raised writer and photographer based in Chicago. His art looks to fill in the gaps left behind in coverage of the worlds that he’s involved with and peripheral to. He uses investigative journalism practice to inform how he approaches his work and its uses. He likes flowers and the little things in life.
