Description

Bruce Davidson (b. 1933) and Paul Caponigro (b. 1932) are two of the greatest American photographers of their generation. Working in different traditions, and exhibiting fundamentally distinct approaches, they are both brilliant observers whose art inspires and provokes. This book, the first to pair the two, examines the work they produced during visits to Britain and Ireland from the 1960s to the 1990s.

Jennifer A. Watts is Curator of Photographs at The Huntington Library. Scott Wilcox is Chief Curator of Art Collections and Senior Curator of Prints and Drawings at the Yale Center for British Art.
