Collection Close-Up: Bruce Davidson’s Photograph...

Presented by Menil Collection at Menil Collection

This exhibition features a selection of works by American photographer Bruce Davidson (b. 1933) drawn primarily from an anonymous gift to the Menil Collection. Davidson is known for establishing personal relationships with his subjects, working over extended periods of time in diverse places and communities to create in-depth series that capture, what he has described as, “worlds in transition.” Examples include people in New York City’s Central Park (in the 1960s and early 1990s), the rigidly stratified class structure in postwar Britain (in the 1960s), and Time of Change, his critically-acclaimed images of the American civil rights movement (from 1960 to 1965). Seeking a shared humanity, Davidson enters circumscribed worlds and offers an intimate perspective through his images of circus performers, Brooklyn gang members, Welsh miners, the neighborhoods of East Harlem, and Jewish cafeterias on the Lower East Side of New York City.

Collection Close-Up: Bruce Davidson’s Photographs is curated by Molly Everett, Curatorial Assistant, Modern and Contemporary Art, at the Menil Collection.
