Bruce Davidson
England/Scotland 1960
HC 24,5 x 22 cm.
Steidl 2005

England/Scotland 1960 offers a poetic insight into the very heart of English and Scottish cultures. Reflecting a post-war era in which the revolutions of the 1960s had hardly yet filtered into the mainstream, Davidson?s photographs reveal countries riven by difference ? the extremes of city and country life, of the landed gentry and the common people ? and lucidly portrays the mood of these times in a personal and provocative imagery that is as fresh today as it was in that time. Published in this book for the first time in its entirety, this is one of the undiscovered gems of late twentieth century documentary photography.
