Outside Inside by Bruce Davidson

Outside Inside is a journey through Bruce Davidson's career and the changing urban landscape of the 20th century.
Outside Inside is a three-volume box set containing eight hundred photographs from Bruce Davidson’s archives. Davidson’s photography spans an intense fifty-year period, from his work as a student in 1954 to two recent works in progress, a series of innovative urban landscapes made in Paris (2006) and Los Angeles (2009). The text for the introductions to the fifty-three chapters comes from Davidson’s own insights, thoughts, and recollections. It includes iconic images from his seminal bodies of work: Circus (1958), Brooklyn Gang (1959), East 100th Street (1966–1968), Time of Change 1961-1965 (The Civil Rights Movement), Subway (1980), Central Park (1992–1995), and previously unpublished photographs. These three volumes celebrate the development of a master of the medium and reflect the artist’s own journey of consciousness.
