Bruce Davidson Photographs At The Telfair Museums

"If I am looking for a story at all, it is in my relationship to the subject - the story that tells me, rather than that I tell" - Bruce Davidson

A collector who wishes to remain anonymous has donated 347 photographs by Bruce Davidson (born: Oak Park, Illinois in 1933) to the Telfair Museums in Savannah, Georgia. The collection spans the Magnum photographer’s career from 1956 to 2008. Included in the collection are images from Davidson’s seminal bodies of work as The Dwarf, Brooklyn Gang, East 100th Street, Central Park and Freedom Rides.
