Caroline Davis’ photographs focus on the emotional impact of African-American baptisms. She captures these images with a camera that functions underwater so that she can capture both the intense moments that occur while a person is submerged, and the dramatic interplay of light and splashing water at the surface. She has photographed baptisms in Greene, Sumter, and Hale counties in Alabama, working in rivers, creeks, and in the baptisteries of churches.
