Davin Youngs describes himself as being "painfully midwestern." Which in fact is the exact reason why I found an immediate attraction to his photography. His work voices the reality of living in one of Chicago's many once rural suburbs and in way is redolent of the feelings I have when going back home. Another great aspect to his photos is the level of personal signification they hold, revealing an intimate view of ones life there instead of giving a more common or general outlook. Davin Youngs.
+It's interesting to note that even though I don't know the people, Davin's portraits all seem to have a certain familiarity to me. He seems to master finding those who are truly Midwest Americans.
