Tweet of the day: Bruce Davidson


In 1965, documentary photographer Bruce Davidson chronicled the civil rights march from Selma to Montgomery, Ala.

I’ve done a picture of Bruce Davidson‘s work before. I thought it was time we had a new one…

It’s a great article Heres a tezzer so you will read it ” NEW YORK — “I’m like Zsa Zsa Gabor,’’ Bruce Davidson says. “I’m famous, but no one knows for what.’’  click the link to read more

I like the section that Diane Arbus talks about Davidson taking much better picture when people look away from his focal point on his camera.

This image is striking with the way the young black man has vote written in white. The black man challenging the white mans ideology that only he can vote. Very brave people. Always staring images!!!

Hello! I get about a bit so here about me first. I am a visual artist and poet who works within the context of fine art. My work is grounded in documentary, exploring the inner beauty of everyday life through various lens based media. Notions of nostalgia and social commentary are present, but from a definite northern working class perspective. Instinctively I exploring the townscapes of North Wales and the North West, often producing work that reflects the every day minutiae of life.
