Aperture and the Strand present Bruce Davidson in conversation with Darius Himes, International Head of Photographs for Christie’s and co-author of Publish Your Photography Book. Davidson will discuss his latest collection, Survey.
This survey, created in conjunction with an exhibition at Fundación Mapfre in Spain, focuses on the work that has made Davidson one of the most influential documentary photographers to this day. In addition to his civil rights series and his work in Harlem, the book includes Davidson’s well-known series Brooklyn Gang, Subway, and Central Park. The book also highlights more recent projects, such as his explorations of Paris and Los Angeles landscapes.
