The Yale Center for British Art is featuring the photographs of Paul Caponigro (b. 1932) and Bruce Davidson (b. 1933). These two influential photographers are paired together for the first time.

According to curator Scott Wilcox, “Caponigro and Davidson embody two very distinct American traditions: Davidson is a photojournalist and exponent of gritty street photography while Caponigro practices a pure, formalist approach to photographing landscape. If Davidson seeks to capture a specific moment in time, Caponigro dwells on the timeless phenomena of nature in relation to the enduring man-made structures of antiquity, such as Stonehenge.”

Utilizing very different images in their art, the two continue to employ the traditional, using film and developing their black-and-white prints by hand.
Of major import to me is that they still find joy in their work and readily share it with all of us!

As different as can be, in subject matter, both photographers are dedicated to using film and developing their black and white prints by hand.
Important to me is that they continue to find joy in producing new work.
