Bruce Davidson: In Color

Edited by Bruce Davidson, Amina Lakhaney. Text by Bruce Davidson.

Bruce Davidson: In ColorThis volume presents Bruce Davidson's personal selections from his lesser-known color archive, from a period of nearly 60 years. Assignments from various magazines including Vogue, National Geographic and Life, as well as commercial projects led Davidson to photograph subjects as diverse as fashion (in the early 1960s), the Shah of Iran with his family (1964), keepers of French monuments (1988), the supermodel Kylie Bax (1997) and college cheerleaders (1989). He photographed in India and China, but also at home in New York, in Chicago and along the Pacific Coast Highway. In 1968, Michelangelo Antonioni invited Davidson to document the making of his film Zabriskie Point. Davidson also continued to pursue personal projects, such as photographing the Yiddish writer and Nobel Prize laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer (1972-75), the New York City subway (1980) and Katz's Delicatessen (2004). Often staying on in a country after an official assignment, Davidson documented Welsh coalfields, family holidays in Martha's Vineyard and travelled through Patagonia and Mexico.

'Zebra: Chicago, 1989' is reproduced from Bruce Davidson: In Color.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

TIME Lightbox

Phil Bicker

A selection of rarely seen color photographs selected by Davidson himself, Steidl's monograph is a vibrant survey of commercial, fashion and documentary work.

TIME Lightbox

Laurence Butet-Roch

In Color makes clear that resorting to chromatic film was never an after-thought for Davidson, nor was it an exceptional one-off reserved to Subway, a series he produced in the 1980s. The book opens with photographs taken as early as 1957 and spans his entire career. It also brings to light the variety of styles he embraced, from anthropological studies à la National Geographic of faraway lands to romantic shots of his family’s vacations in Martha’s Vineyard, before closing with an outlandish look at Katz’s Delicatessen in New York City.

American Photo

Jack Crager

Ranging from street scenes to fashion shoots to documentary projects, the retrospective shows off his versatility as a visual stylist and wry social commentator.

Independent Photographer

Josh Bright

Spanning almost the entirety of his remarkable career and encompassing the full spectrum of styles that he purveyed: from editorial and commercial works (captured on assignment for, among others, Vogue, Life Magazine, and National Geographic) personal, documentary projects, and candid depictions of quotidian life across the globe, In Color is the only extensive retrospective of his chromatic output ever published

Blind

Sara Rosen

Throughout the book, Davidson reveals the ways that color photography can be used to inform and enhance our understanding of life.

Bruce Davidson: In Color

Bruce Davidson: In Color

Describing his 1993 assignment to photograph the Pacific Coast Highway for Travel & Leisure magazine in STEIDL's essential new monograph on his color work, Bruce Davidson writes, "It was a dream assignment to cruise up the coastal highway from Santa Monica, California to Seattle, Washington taking pictures of vistas along the way. Some of the highway views were exquisitely powerful with the mountain range's foothills coming right down to the Pacific Ocean coastline. My wife Emily and I felt the power and beauty at this edge of America. It took us seventeen days to complete the journey and without Emily's abundant energy, strong driving skills and astute organizing, I could not have completed the project." Advance copies will be available at our ARTBOOK + STEIDL booth at the LAABF, opening Thursday night at the Geffen Contemporary! continue to blog
