My name is Zoe Davis
Originally from Chicago, I recently graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in journalism and minors in Spanish and Latin American studies. While there, I worked as a photographer for North by Northwestern magazine, a reporter for the Northwestern News Network and a videographer for the university’s football team. For three seasons, I filmed practices and games for coaches and players to review and also contributed to videos posted on YouTube and the biweekly television show “The Foundation: Inside Northwestern Football”. I also worked with the broadcast team of the athletic department to film games, including a live-streamed game for the Big Ten Network and edited videos for social media and live events.
In 2017, I studied Cuban history, literature and film for six weeks in Havana,. During my senior year, I lived in Buenos Aires, Argentina for three months, where I was a communications intern for the Conservation Land Trust. As part of my internship, I traveled to national parks in Corrientes and Santa Cruz and took photographs that were published in two national news outlets. Both experiences allowed me to immerse myself in the Spanish language and converse with people with backgrounds and experiences different from my own. I am interested in telling stories about race and gender and how they play out in North and Latin American cultures.
I am currently a master’s student in photography, multimedia and design at Syracuse University, where my focus has been documenting sports in the Syracuse area. This year I am interning in the Syracuse Football video department and teaching multimedia storytelling to undergraduate students. I want to create sports visual storytelling that portrays not only the action but also shows the passion, commitment and dedication of athletes.
