Product Details


“His signature series, brought together in a new biography titled Bruce Davidson: An Illustrated Biography: Magnum Legacy authored by Vicki Goldberg, published by ©Prestel and available now, chronicled the struggle of alienated Americans and underground culture – from wayward youths in Brooklyn Gang (1959), to the turbulent protests against segregation in Time of Change: Civil Rights Photographs (1961–65), and inner-city ghetto life in East 100th Street (1970).”

“The Magnum Legacy Series is shaping up to be one of the most desirable titles in the plethora of artists monographs.”

Amateur Photographer
“What comes through this richly textured bio is Bruce Davidson’s reliable empathy, whether photographing tenement dwellers in Harlem or scenes of the underside of glamour . . . As Goldberg makes clear in her text, Davidson mastered the art of blending in and slyly capturing moments: ‘There is a way to get into any community if you don’t knock too loudly,’ he said.”

American Photo
“[The] monographs are some of my favorites ever published, in particular Brooklyn Gang, East 100th Street, and Subway. One of the things I admire most about [the] work is the deep sense of humanity that exists, a compassion and consideration for the details of people’s lives and the dignity of the individual.”

“In Bruce Davidson: An Illustrated Biography, writer Vicki Goldberg presents an affectionate, sometimes reverent look at the documentary photographer and the major events and turning points in his career . . . Goldberg is persuasive in positioning Davidson’s work between the worlds of art, social documentary, and activism.”
