Autorentext
Born in 1933, Bruce Davidson began photographing at the age of ten in Oak Park, Illinois. Davidson studied at the Rochester Institute of Technology and Yale University before being drafted into the army. After leaving military service in 1957, he freelanced for Life and in 1958 became a member of Magnum Photos. Davidson's work is held in many major museum collections and his awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship (1962) and the first National Endowment for the Arts Grant in Photography (1967). In 2011 he was awarded an honorary doctorate in Fine Arts from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. Davidson's books at Steidl include Circus (2007), Outside Inside (2010), Subway (2011) and Black & White (2012).

Klappentext

"Esquire's editors sent me to Los Angeles, and when I landed
at L.A. International Airport I noticed giant palm trees growing
in the parking lot. I ordered a hamburger through a microphone
speaker in a drive-in called Tiny Naylor's. The freeways were blank and brilliant, chromium-plated bumpers reflected the Pacific Ocean, but the air quality was said to be bad. People looking like mannequins seemed at peace on the Sunset Strip while others were euphoric as they watered the desert. I stood there ready with my Leica, aware of my shadow on the pavement. I walked up to strangers, framed, focused, and in a split second of alienations and cynicism, pressed the shutter button. Suddenly I had an awakening that led me to another level of visual understanding. But in the end, for some unknown reasons, the editors rejected the
pictures, and I had to return home with a big box of prints, put them in a drawer, and forgot all about the trip."
Bruce Davidson
