This review is from: Bruce Davidson: Circus (Hardcover)
An offence bordering on the criminal has occured. The fact this is the first time these images have been together in print is most certainly a crime against photography!
This is a beautiful book. Well observed well printed and a great size for the subject. The images show a great sense of observation and empathy without straying into sentimentality. Each image has a great narrative on it's own and as a body of work the book shows glimpses of many many aspects of life in the circus and peoples essential humanity. It's a real masterclass in documentary photography refined to the point of being a work of art.
A must have for anyone who appreciates a master photographer shooting from the gut and seing with their heart.
