Limited Edition. Five clothbound books in a slipcase.

Black and White is the definitive collection of Bruce Davidson's black-and-white photography, spanning a period of 40 years. This collectible five-volume set comprises reprints of classic books of Davidson's poignant imagery, some of them newly edited and expanded. The seminal bodies of work are Circus (1958), an intimate portrait of a dwarf clown; Brooklyn Gang (1959), depicting a group of troubled youths; Time of Change (1961–1965), a civil rights documentation in America; East 100th Street (1966–1968), showing life on one block in Spanish Harlem; and Central Park (1992–1995), exploring layers of life in New York's famous urban oasis. Black and White is a tribute to Davidson's unique photographic achievement and a powerful document of social change.
