Looking for something artistic and meaningful to do in NYC this weekend? We have just the thing for you. Currently showing at the Howard Greenberg Gallery is an exhibition of photographs from iconic American documentary photographer, Bruce Davidson.
The gallery exhibition is called Time of Change: Civil Rights Photographs, 1961-1965. On May 25 in 1961, Bruce Davidson joined a group of Freedom Riders traveling from Montgomery, Alabama to Jackson, Mississippi. In 1962, Davidson received a Guggenheim Fellowship and continued documenting the era, including the five-day march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama with Martin Luther King, Jr. The photographs he captured represent an important time in American History when the nation was entrenched in the monumental civil rights struggle for justice and equality.
Bruce Davidson’s images have the rare power to capture rare intimate and candid moments of the human experience. Since 1959, he has amassed a staggering catalog of photographs that seem to diffuse entire cultural movements into simple, honest and poetic visual expressions.
The exhibition is being held at that Howard Greenberg Gallery located at 41 East 57 Street and runs from June 6 – July 6, 2013.
