Bruce Davidson is a pioneer of social documentary photography.
He began taking photographs at the age of ten and continued to develop his passion at Rochester Institute of Technology and Yale University. Later called upon for military service, Davidson met Henri Cartier-Bresson in France and was introduced to Magnum Photos. From his documentation of the civil rights movement to his study of one derelict block in Harlem, he has immersed himself fully in his projects, which have sometimes taken him several years to complete. Join him for an immersive discussion about his life and work.
Bruce Davidson will be signing copies of his new book, Bruce Davidson: Survey, following the event.
