Press Release

Howard Greenberg Gallery proudly celebrates the much-anticipated opening of the new gallery space with an exhibition of vintage photographs from the personal archive of Bruce Davidson, the highly respected and award-winning photographer. A selection of works from the early years of Davidson’s career, most of which have never before been exhibited, will be the first photographs to hang on the walls of the Fuller building gallery, designed by Lubrano Ciavarra Design, LLC. Bruce Davidson is widely acknowledged as one of the most important photographers in his field. His work has had a major influence on a generation of photographers, critics, and viewers. Davidson’s talent was recognized early on by a broad range of institutions at the forefront of journalism, photography, and artistic trends. At the age of twenty-four, Davidson worked as a freelance photographer for LIFE magazine. A year later, in 1958, he was invited to join Magnum Photos, the pre-eminent photo-agency owned by its photographer members. Shortly thereafter, in 1963, he had a solo exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art.
