Shareen Davis is a commercial and fine art photographer, a former photo editor and commercial fisherman, and present owner of Trap Dock Press, a design and publishing company located in Chatham. She is a 13th generation Cape Codder who resides in Chatham with her husband, weir fisherman Ernie Eldredge. Her work reflects more than 30 years of photographing the people of the coastal fishery communities. “My family and I have lived and worked on the shoreline and by the sea, so our spirits are really tied to that sense of being and time,” Davis said.
Davis’ body of photographic work has conveyed political and environmental messages addressing issues of coastal fishing community workers as well as capturing the history, environment and beauty of the Cape coastline. Her series of abstract seascapes on acrylic glass are featured at the Frying Pan Gallery in Wellfleet, Massachusetts. Her book, “Through the Fog- A photographer’s retrospective of a life lived along the shoreline of Chatham” (Trap Dock Press) is due out in Spring 2017.
