This book presents a choice of one hundred and twenty photographs by Bruce Davidson, which he selected from fifteen essays. This fruit of twenty years of work is enlightened by his sincere testimony, expressing his journey and the passionate search for his identity. This selection clearly illustrates the evolution of his work and personality, from the impressionism of The Widow of Montmartre (1956) to the deep poetry and acute realism of The Cafeteria (1976). Through The Dwarf (1958), A Gang in Brooklyn (1959), England and Scotland (1960), American Blacks (1962 - 1965), The Bridge (1963), Los Angeles (1964), or Welsh Miners (1965). Of his splendid essay East Hundredth Street, the result of two years of work (1966-1968) John Szarkowski, chief curator of the Department of Photography at the National Museum of Modern Art in New York, wrote: "He shows us real people, photographed during those special moments of inaction when the complexity and ambiguity of individual lives triumph over abstraction.
