Art Exhibit


Curated from Telfair Museums’ collection of 348 photographs by Bruce Davidson, this retrospective presents an overarching yet intimate look at his expansive career. Davidson’s belief that artists should “pay their dues” when granted the access to photograph someone’s life is evident through his lifetime of work. His investment and sympathy towards his subjects is reflected over 50 years, from his friendship with the troubled youths on the streets of Brooklyn in the 1950s to his documentation of the crumbling infrastructure of the gritty subway system of New York City in the 1980s. Organized chronologically and serially, the exhibition traces his lifelong methodology of recording moments of change through his keen eye developed through time and attention and a true desire for understanding.
