East 100th Street by Bruce Davidson( Book )

27 editions published between 1070 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 844 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the early 1960s, Bruce Davidson went against the habitual practice both of his photojournalist colleagues in the Magnum photo agency and the artsy snapshooters of the Social Landscape school by using a large-format view camera rather than the 35 mm or medium format to make social documentary photographs. From this fruitful experiment emerged a classic photobook--East 100th Street. For almost two years Davidson utilized the careful (and conspicuous) approach dictated by this cumbersome equipment to photograph one city block in East Harlem, New York. He returned day after day, knocking on doors, standing on the street, and always asking permission to photograph the Hispanic and African-American inhabitants of this underprivileged neighborhood."--The Photobook : A History Volume II / Martin Parr and Gerry Badger. London : Phaidon, 2004

Bruce Davidson : an illustrated biography by Vicki Goldberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vicki Goldberg's authoritative text explores the wide range of his vision and technique, and reveals how his work has played a critical role in twentieth-century photography. The text includes beautifully reproduced images from his most iconic series such as Brooklyn Gang, East 100th Street, Subway, and Time of Change: Civil Rights Photographs, along with never-before-seen archival material from Davidson s private archive. Davidson s photographs reveal his curiosity about, and empathy for, his subjects; whether he is documenting circuses, gangs, East Harlem tenements, Jewish cafeterias, Welsh miners, or Central Park, Davidson imbues his work with an eye for narrative. His pictures tell stories and he lets them speak for themselves. The result is a comprehensive and elegantly presented portrait of an artist's life and work

Bobby's book by Emily S Davidson( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1998, at the very moment that a publisher had approached Bruce Davidson about a book of his 1959 Brooklyn Gang photographs, former gang leader Bobby Powers unexpectedly telephoned the Davidsons. Over the next decade, Emily Davidson maintained an ongoing conversation with Powers in order to bring to light his struggle to overcome his drug-ridden and violent past and to inspire others with his example. Through the words and reflections of the former drug addict and petty criminal, this book relates the long, agonizing journey from youthful urban violence and despair to the life of a committed and generous professional. Beginning in a working-class Brooklyn neighborhood in the mid 1950s where alcohol abuse and poverty were rampant, Bobby Powers went from being an illiterate gang leader and notorious drug dealer to a destroyed individual who had lost everything, including family members, close friends, and himself, all presented in his own words and in grim detail in this book. At a critical turning point in his life, recognizing the threat of his behaviors to survival, he entered detox and embarked on the arduous path to recovery and self-understanding. This process involved not only acknowledging and coming to terms with the injuries he had inflicted on his children and others, but also asking for their forgiveness. Having achieved a new way of life as a responsible and caring adult, Bobby Powers is today, at 69, a nationally respected drug addiction counselor who has aided a wide spectrum of people, including former gang members. His story represents a brutal and inspiring lesson in human frailty, degradation, and transformation
