Art Out: Bruce Davidson: "Subject: Contact"
Images by Andrés Mercado
Bruce Davidson, Subject: Contact will present contact sheets in context with vintage prints from four seminal projects from the 1950s and ‘60s - Circus, Brooklyn Gang, Time of Change, and East 100th Street - illustrating Davidson’s connection to some of the 20th century’s most important social, cultural, and political moments. The exhibition will be on view at Howard Greenberg Gallery from May 2 through June 15, with an opening reception attended by the artist to be held on Thursday, May 2 from 6-8 p.m.
Poetic and profound, powerful and tender, Davidson’s work derives its strength from the unique and long-lasting relationships he developed with his subjects, first gaining their trust, then allowing them to open up to him and his camera, before documenting their lives. “I stand to the side respectfully until I am invited in,” Davidson has said. “There is a lot of patience and stillness in the making of a photograph.”
