Get to know Bruce…
This Saturday evening photographer Bruce Davidson will discuss his new book Subway published by Aperture. The series was started in 1980 here in NYC, back when the subway was a scary no man’s land. But Bruce has never shied away from a challenge. His first memorable series was when he took a 4×5 camera to East 100th Street in the late 1960′s.
While I do not believe Bruce refers to himself as a street photographer, he built his career on photographing real people in their neighborhoods. It will be a great chance to hear Bruce talk about his work. Radio interviews and documentaries are good, but there is nothing like meeting a photographer you admire. Bruce is a very personable guy and really goes above and beyond the normal call of duty to connect with younger photographers. So send your RSVP to Davidsontalk@milkstudios.com.
And check back on Friday for Part III of the Surrealist Manifesto.
See you there!
