The Menil Collection is pleased to present Collection Close-Up: Bruce Davidson's Photographs. The exhibition comprises of a selection of the American photographer's most consequential series made between 1956 and 1995, primarily drawn from an anonymous gift to the museum of approximately 350 of Davidson's photographs, which have never before been on view at the Menil. Seeking a shared humanity, Davidson's photographs offer an intimate perspective of his subjects and their communities, from circus performers to Welsh miners to New York City neighborhoods. Bruce Davidson's Photographs will be on view at the Menil December 10, 2021 through May 29, 2022.
