Bruce Davidson: Love and Longing
January 13 – March 19, 2022
MoFA Lower Gallery
“I have had the privilege of being an outsider allowed on the inside,
searching for beauty, meaning, and myself.”
For eight decades, Bruce Davidson has documented people on the margins. A master of mood and nuance, his images show us the universalities of not just joy or grief, but also things more difficult to capture – contemplation and hope.
Bruce Davidson: Love and Longing features more than fifty original photographs from many of the artist’s most acclaimed series, including Brooklyn Gang, Subway, Chicago, Central Park, Florida – Daytona Biker Week, and the Birmingham Museum Project. This exhibition was made possible through the support of an anonymous donor, the Council on Culture & Arts, and the Florida Department of State – Division of Art & Culture.
