Magnum Photographer Bruce Davidson on His Photographs
by CHRIS GAMPAT on 05/12/2013
If you’ve never heard of Bruce Davison before, I’m glad to say that today is a lucky day of yours and that you’ll be inspired by such a humble and wonderful aged photographer far beyond the egotistical creatives out there. Davidson has worked on many photo essays for Magnum, and has even inspired the likes of Eric Kim. Now in his eighties, Davidson continues to work as an editorial photographer. His photographs appear around the world and in many museums. Also, Davidson has directed two award-winning short films, a documentary titled Living off the Land and a more surreal tale titled Isaac Singer’s Nightmare and Mrs. Pupko’s Beard.
Today, Reddit turned us onto two videos of his published last year by Tate Photos. Davidson has photographedBrooklyn Gangs in the late 50s–which is what he is best known for. However, the videos above and below show off even more of his work such as those on London’s streets and in the subways.
If you’re in the mood to be inspired and maybe even shed a tear, these are worth kicking back and watching.
