|About the Artist:
Allison Davis O’Keefe is an American photographer who has captured the U.S. landscape in portraits of a cross-country journey, two presidential campaigns, the apex of power in Washington, D.C., and, most recently, the curiosities of life and sports through the lens of the nation’s top-ranked college hockey team.
It is in the quiet moments found in the space between that Allison likes to linger, to find the beauty in discomfort when one is neither here nor there.
While always carrying a camera around, Allison worked as a producer for CBS News in New York and Washington. A political observer and professed junkie, Allison covered the 2004 and 2008 presidential elections as well as the Senate, House, and Supreme Court, filing for CBS News.com, CBS News Radio and contributing reporting to all CBS News television platforms. As part of the CBS News team, Allison was honored with an Emmy Award for coverage of 9/11.
Allison has a Bachelors degree in Environment, Economics, and Politics from Claremont McKenna College. She is also a graduate of the International Center of Photography’s Documentary and Photojournalism Program as well as the Eddie Adams Workshop.
