This is the first retrospective of Bruce Davidson's work in Spain; Davidson is one of the most important exponents of the humanist photography movement, and a member of the Magnum agency. The exhibition looks back at the entirety of his career, more than 50 years of work, and features some of his most famous series, such as 'Brooklyn Gang', 'East 100th Street' and 'Time of Change: Civil Rights Movement'. In addition, the selection also includes his latest works, 'Nature of Paris' and 'Nature of Los Angeles'.
Bruce Davidson's passion for photography started at a young age. Rather than responding to a specific style, his work is characterised by a personal vision of reality in which his art doesn't show itself so much in individual images but rather in the effect of repetition and juxtaposition of themes and people. With the latter we share an intimacy we can only achieve thanks to the charismatic presence of Davidson, who wins the confidence and access to the lives of those who appear in his shots (including those which deal with more conflictive subject matters), with surprising ease. His work is the reflection of an ethical compromise in the face of hard realities and precarious, vulnerable environments in which the daily lives of those captured take place.
