Footnotes

  • Literature
    Davidson, East 100th Street, St. Ann's Press, Los Angeles, 2003, for all of the images in this large group.

    For two years in the late 1960s, Bruce Davidson photographed one block in East Harlem. He went back day after day, standing on sidewalks, knocking on doors, asking permission to photograph what he found there - a face, a child, a room, a family. This was a radical project for the time and the resulting pictures were equally remarkable, arguably Davidson's finest body of work.
