Photographs by Bruce Davidson.
Steidl Photography International, 2010. 800 pp., Tritone illustrations throughout three volumes, 9½x11¾".
Outside Inside is a gorgeous three-volume
box set of 800 photographs drawn from this master
photographer’s immense archive. Chosen by
Davidson himself, the selection spans a 60-year
career, and features such seminal bodies of work as
Circus (1958), Brooklyn Gang (1959), East 100th Street
(1966–1968), The Civil Rights Movement (1961–1965),
Subway (1980) and Central Park (1992–1995), as
well as his two most recent works in progress—a
series of urban landscapes made in Paris (2007)
and Los Angeles (2009)—and many unpublished
photographs. The pages in these volumes document
Davidson’s passionate and progressive vision, a
vision that bears witness to several decades of
volatile change in twentieth-century America.
Born in 1933 in Oak Park, Illinois, Bruce Davidson’s
prolific career began in 1949, when he began taking
photographs as a precocious 16-year-old. In 1954,
he studied at Yale University with the great
teacher and artist, Josef Albers, working briefly as
a freelance photographer for Life magazine before
joining Magnum Photos in 1958, after a meeting
with one of its founders, Henri Cartier-Bresson.
Davidson was given a Gold Medal Lifetime
Achievement Award from the National Arts Club
in 2007. His work has been extensively published
in monographs and is included in many major
collections around the world.
