Bruce Davidson fans will get to check out vintage prints and contact sheets from the Magnum photographer’s seminal works from the 1950s to 1960s.
If you’re looking to become inspired by iconic street and documentary photography, make sure not to miss this upcoming Bruce Davidson exhibit at the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York. Titled SUBJECT: CONTACT, on display will be contact sheets along with vintage prints from Circus, Brooklyn Gang, Time of Change, and East 100th Street — four of the Magnum photographer’s influential projects that explore the most important social, cultural, and political scenes of the 20th century. Davidson is known for establishing an immersive and long-lasting relationship with his subjects; gaining their trust so they can open up to him and his camera. With this, he was able to document their daily lives through a unique perspective. “I stand to the side respectfully until I am invited in,” Davidson has said. “There is a lot of patience and stillness in the making of a photograph.”
