Catalogue Note

"[Bruce Davidson] approached the East 100th Street work with sympathy and dedication, but [also] with a [...] pronounced sense of responsibility to his subjects. [He] returned to his blasted stretch of East Harlem regularly for nearly two years [...] until he and his bulky view camera began to be part of the block daily life. Davidson's [...] subjects were just invisible to much of the outside world, and he approached them with a tenderness that was neither judgmental nor misty-eyed. [...] the rapport he established allows those people to surrender to the camera with their humanity intact" (Vince Aletti in Roth's The book of 101 books).
