Last Thursday we went and checked out famed documentary photographer Bruce Davidson at the Levi's Workshop in Soho. He was there to present his new book entitled Outside Inside which contains over 800 photographs selected and hand printed by Davidson that span his entire career to date. You may not recognize the name right away, but chances are you have probably seen his images from the 60s. He documented events and effects of the Civil Rights Movement around the country, in both the North and South. He is best known for his amazing works Brooklyn Gang, East 100th Street and Central Park. Last week Davidson took us through hundreds of slides from last 50 years, lending details and personal insights about the tense atmospheres where the shots were captured. Davidson's images have inspired and often been referenced countless of times in our fashion editorials, and he has a special place in our hearts. Check out some of the photos from Outside In after the jump.
