Bruce Davidson: Survey
A beautiful survey of photographer Bruce Davidson's prized black and white work
Bruce Davidson: Survey is the first single-volume comprehensive survey on this pioneer of social documentary photography.
From his profound documentation of the civil rights movement to his in-depth study of one derelict block in Harlem, Davidson (born 1933) has immersed himself fully in his projects, which have sometimes taken him several years to complete.
This survey, created in conjunction with an exhibition at Fundación Mapfre in Spain, focuses on the work that has made Davidson one of the most influential documentary photographers to this day. In addition to his civil rights series and his work in Harlem, the book includes Davidson’s well-known series Brooklyn Gang, Subway, and Central Park. The book also highlights more recent projects, such as his explorations of Paris and Los Angeles landscapes.
