Society documents the empty internal spaces of a variety of London clubs, from the Kurdish Community Centre, to the Masons, the Fabian Society, The Indian Workers Association and the National Association of Flower Arrangers. The photographs provide a resonant and evocative portrait of rich hidden worlds operating within the city, revealing the interior spaces where communities gather. The series explores how people express their identity, their interests and concerns to create their own worlds, expressed through artifact and architecture. The work produces a strange tension between public and private, between beauty and the everyday. Bridget Smith is a photographer who has an on-going interest in architecture and the public realm and the emotional resonance within built form. She has an international reputation for photographing interiors and landscapes devoid of people. These places have often been sites of public leisure (cinema auditoria) or private fantasy (themed hotel rooms, glamour studios). In Society Bridget's work starts shifting towards a preoccupation with people and the worlds they create.

One of the world's most influential photographers, Bruce Davidson takes readers inside three midcentury big tops in images that are poetic, realistic and profound. He reveals not only the swiftly vanishing cultural phenomenon of the circus, but what might be called the eternal human circus. At a three-ring show in 1958 he climbed to the top of the tent to view the performances of the famous liontamer Clyde Beatty and human cannonball Hugo Zacchini. His deeper interest lay in the daily lives of circus performers and producers--the roustabouts and riggers, and the pretty girl who rode an elephant in what was called the "spec." He also made an intimate series of a dwarf clown. In 1965 at a huge multi-ring coliseum show, Davidson took a more critical look at performances under a steel-and-concrete environment; continuing behind the scenes, his vision became sharper and more surreal. And in 1967, Davidson caught the elegant exuberance of an Irish one-ring circus. He photographed the kinds of performances that are the essence of the medium, including a face-to-face encounter with an exceptional trapeze artist. Most of these pictures are published here for the first time.

A beautiful book that showcases how circus figures and artifacts have been portrayed in art over the past two centuries The circus is a dazzling world filled with acrobats and harlequins, tumblers and riders, monsters and celestial creatures. Now this engaging book sets that world in a new light, examining how painters, sculptors, and photographers from the eighteenth century to the present have used the circus as a springboard for their imaginative expression and have envisioned the clown as a metaphor for the modern artist. The book presents more than 175 works by such artists as Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Rouault, Picasso, Chagall, and Léger. Some of these are masterful works shown for the first time; these range from the 18-meter stage curtain Picasso designed in 1917 for Erik Satie's ballet Parade to more intimate works such as Nadar and Tournachon's photographs of Pierrot as played by celebrated mime Charles Debureau.

Following the success of his series of grim photographs of the circus world and of the bleak lives of urban youth in Brooklyn, Bruce Davidson turned his lens to England and Scotland. For three months he traversed the country, recording both the sights of a disappearing life and the new realities of the welfare state, peace marchers, teddy boys, Room at the Top, Jimmy Porter and the red brick universities. The resulting series of photographs constitute a classic work of photography and a moving, evocative portrait of a bygone Britain. They were showcased along with Davidson's other photographic essays in a 1963 exhibition of Davidson's work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Over the course of his long career Bruce Davidson has travelled the world making reportage stories both on assignment as a member of the Magnum agency and on subjects of personal interest. A few years ago he returned to his archive of negatives housed in a room in his Manhattan apartment and began a ritual of revisiting each and every one of the stories he had made, from his work as a student in 1954 to his urban landscapes in Los Angeles in 2009. Printing in his darkroom alongside the archive, he began to elaborate a very personal selection, discovering forgotten images and throwing new light onto some of his most famous series. Outside Inside is the result of this work, a sumptuous three volume box set with fifty-three chapters over 800 pages. Each chapter is introduced by a short text written by Davidson himself. The result is a celebration of the development of a master of the medium and an autobiography, a photographer's life seen through his work. Bruce Davidson began taking pictures at the age of ten in Oak Park, Illinois. He continued to further his exploration of photography at Rochester Institute of Technology, followed by Yale University. He was later drafted into the military, stationed in the Arizona desert and then sent to a unit near Paris, where he met Henri Cartier-Bresson. When he left military service in 1957, Davidson freelanced for LIFE, and in 1958 he became a member of Magnum. His numerous awards include a Guggenheim Fellowship (1962) and the first National Endowment for the Arts in Photography (1967). His work has been extensively published and included in many major fine art collections. Most recently, Steidl published England/Scotland 1960 and Circus.

Disability And Art History

This is the first book of its kind to feature interdisciplinary art history and disability studies scholarship. Art historians have traditionally written about images of figures with impairments and artworks by disabled artists, without integrating disability studies scholarship, while many disability studies scholars discuss works of art, but do not necessarily incorporate art historical research and methodology. The chapters in this volume emphasize a shift away from the medical model of disability that is often scrutinized in art history by considering the social model and representations of disabled figures from a range of styles and periods, mostly from the twentieth century. Topics addressed include visible versus invisible impairments; scientific, anthropological, and vernacular images of disability; and the theories and implications of looking/staring versus gazing. They also explore ways in which art responds to, envisions, and at times stereotypes and pathologizes disability. The insights offered in this book contextualize understanding of disability historically, as well as in terms of medicine, literature, and visual culture.

101 Conservative Limericks By Bruce Davidson 101 Conservative Limericks is designed to bring a laugh through clever wordplay and also spark political thought on the more serious ones, if there is such a thing. These limericks first appeared online (and sometimes in print) in the Dallas Morning News and on the author’s “The Limerick Guy” blog, where they ran regularly for nearly four years, numbering approximately 350 in total. The cream of the crop is within these pages: 101 “righter-than-left” poems ranging from contemporary headlines like Benghazi and immigration to the final days of the “Obamadastrain” and the rise of “Hillary Dillary Dock.”
