East 100th Street, Bruce Davidson
As controversial and groundbreaking as when it was first published, Davidson's document of life in Harlem is one of the truly essential photodocumentaries. Portraying neither victims nor heros, his portraits reveal the complexity of poverty. Throughout this concisely edited book there is an obvious sense of respect and an unsettling eroticism.
Bruce Davidson remains one of the world's great photographers. A member of the prestigious Magnum Photos agency since 1958, he took inspiration from his friend and mentor, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and went on to redefine the genre of photojournalism with his singular style and methods. He is perhaps best known for his photo-essays documenting subversive and counter culture groups.
