Bruce Davidson and Anna Mia Davidson
Howard Greenberg Gallery
41 East 57th Street, Suite 1406
October 30 – December 6
With Bruce Davidson’s photography, intense black and white images are usually what come to mind. This is why it’s so rare to have an exhibit entirely of his color photography. “In Color” will be held at the Howard Greenberg Gallery, and will include nearly 30 images dating from 1957-2004. The exhibition comes at the same time as his new book is released, also titled In Color. Bruce Davidson’s daughter, Anna Mia Davidson, will also be included in the gallery, with her exhibition, “Human Nature.” Her work will be held in the alcove gallery adjacent to the main gallery. The opening for both artists will be on Thursday, October 30 from 6-8 pm.
Bruce Davidson has worked as a documentary photographer for magazines including Vogue, National Geographic, and Life, and in places like India, China, Mexico, and at home in New York, Chicago, and along the Pacific Coast Highway. His color photos still manage to have a raw vigor and intensity that are found in his black and white work. His previous work has been exhibited at The Museum of Modern Art, and the Smithsonian.
This will be the first time Anna Mia Davidson will exhibit her work. Her show, Human Nature, documents sustainable farmers at more than ten small farms within the Pacific Northwest. She learned about sustainable farming while photographing in Cuba in the 90’s. She says, “The amount of work and dedication to be a true steward of the land is humbling to witness.” Her photography series on Cuba became her inspiration for her visual exploration of local farming in Washington, where farmers are becoming committed to sustainable agriculture and animal husbandry. She and her husband practice elements of what she has learned in their own garden.
