First Bruce Davidson retrospective exhibition at MAPFRE Foundation in Spain

May 28, 2016

The MAPFRE Foundation in Spain is hosting it's first retrospective exhibition of Bruce Davidson's decades worth of iconic photographs at the Casa Garriga i Nogués in Madrid.


  Bruce Davidson,  Jimmy Armstrong, The Dwarf , USA. Palisades, New Jersey, 1958.

"Bruce Davidson began a passionate relationship with photography soon, at age 10, when her mother set up a darkroom at home and he began photographing the streets of his neighborhood. From that time his work will be characterized by a personal vision of reality in which their art is manifested not so much in individual images, but the effect of repetition, research and study of themes and characters throughout weather. This personal style combined with his interest in the struggles and successes of people who make photography his work offers us a unique perspective on the evolution of society SXX, particularly in the United States.

The exhibition presents a journey through the long history of the artist presenting some of his most famous series , such as Brooklyn Gang, East 100th Street and Time of Change: Civil Rights Movement and also his last works, Nature of Paris and Nature of Los Angeles."

The exhibition will be on view from 12 September until 15 Janurary, 2017.
