Bruce Davidson

I said there was going to be more photography on here.

Before NYC got all pretty, Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson was key in documenting Harlem during the civil rights and beyond. "East 100th Street" remains one of the finest photobooks I have ever seen and "Subway" is a beautiful look at the MTA before the buff and the broken window policy. You can flip through a good portion of his books here.
