About the work
Davis Cone
American, b. 1950
Follow

Considered one of the masters of 20th-century photorealism, Davis Cone devotes his practice to documenting the Art Deco movie theaters of America. He captures these vintage establishments in cities and suburban settings at various hours, from a range of angles, and in different weather systems and lighting, paying particular homage to the neon lights and architectural grandeur of his subjects. For Cone, the works suggest the endurance of America’s movie culture and convey nostalgia for a bygone era. Working from dozens of images he takes at movie houses and their environs, Cone depicts scenes in which figures rarely appear, or are only incidental to the image, capturing an atmospheric quality redolent of Edward Hopper.
