Born in Illinois, in 1933, Bruce Davidson is an American documentary photographer. His initial foray into the world of street photography came at the age of ten, when he picked up a camera for the first time. Upon graduating college, he was drafted into the army and met the inspiring force that was Henri Cartier-Bresson. In 1958, Davidson joined Bresson’s successful collaborative company, Magnum Photos. His work presents an unflinching, in-depth social commentary on the unsettling reality of life in the streets, poverty, racial identity and discrimination. His documentation of the American Civil Rights movement is particularly profound. Davidson has been featured in countless exhibitions worldwide.

Other honorable mentions include Steve McCurry at Peter Fetterman, Irving Penn at Howard Greenberg and Chris Killip at Eric Franck Fine Art.  See the write up in full at ultravie.co.uk/blog
