Tying it Together: Brooklyn Gang, Bruce Davidson, Book Signing

Los Angeles, 1964, Bruce Davidson/Magnum Photos

Sean O'Hagan continues his ability to read my mind for what I like in the photography world over on his Guardian blog with a great piece about Bruce Davidson's "Brooklyn Gang"

Davidson, whose image on the "Beastie Boys: Ill Communication" album cover inadvertently led me to becoming a photographer myself has long been a huge hero of mine and am always delighted when his classic images are talked about and discussed.

O'Hagan mentions that first edition copies of "Brooklyn Gang" are retailing for about $800 a pop: probably double that if Bruce gets the pen out on Wedenesday during the Magnum Book Signing at Milk Studios.
