- IIIF Manifest:
Bruce Davidson made his name in the late 1950s with photographs of Brooklyn’s notorious street gangs. Seeking a retreat and change of pace, he crossed the Atlantic on an assignment for the magazine the Queen. He spent two months touring Britain in a Hillman Minx convertible and photographing the places and people of Britain, publishing his book England/Scotland in 1960. Davidson’s urban photographs captured a nation in decline and still emerging from postwar privation. But he also photographed the landscapes, including this image of a lake with the cloudy sky reflected in the water, an homage perhaps to the great British landscape photographers of the nineteenth century.
