Black & White. 5 volumes
BeschreibungBlack & White is the definitive collection of Bruce Davidson's black and white photography, spanning a period of 40 years.
This collectable five-volume set comprises re-prints of classic books of Davidson's poignant and purposeful imagery, some
of them newly edited and expanded. The seminal bodies of work are Circus (1958), an intimate portrait of a dwarf clown;
Brooklyn Gang (1959), depicting a group of troubled youths; Time of Change (1961-1965), a civil rights documentation
in America; East 100th Street (1966-1968), showing life on one block in Spanish Harlem; and Central Park (1992-
1995), exploring layers of life in New York's famous urban oasis. Black & White is a tribute to Davidson's unique
photographic achievement, and a powerful document of social change.
