Journey of Consciousness is a gorgeous three-volume box set of 800 photographs drawn from this master photographer's immense archive. Chosen by Davidson himself, the selection spans a 60-year career, and features such seminal bodies of work as Circus(1958), Brooklyn Gang(1959), East 100th Street(1966-1968), The Civil Rights Movement(1961-1965), Subway(1980) and Central Park(1992-1995), as well as his two most recent works in progress--a series of urban landscapes made in Paris (2007) and Los Angeles (2009)--and many unpublished photographs. The pages in these volumes document Davidson's passionate and progressive vision, a vision that bears witness to several decades of volatile change in twentieth-century America.
Born in 1933 in Oak Park, Illinois, Bruce Davidson's prolific career began in 1949, when he began taking photographs as a precocious 16-year-old. In 1954, he studied at Yale University with the great teacher and artist, Josef Albers, working briefly as a freelance photographer for Lifemagazine before joining Magnum Photos in 1958, after a meeting with one of its founders, Henri Cartier-Bresson. Davidson was given a Gold Medal Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Arts Club in 2007. His work has been extensively published in monographs and is included in many major collections around the world.

There are lots of photos selected from the vast collect Bruce Davidson's work. The notes written at the end of each book adds a lot of personal touch to the photos as they gave insight to Bruce's thoughts and feelings during the days the photos were taken.
This is my first purchase from Amazon.com. The transaction went smoothly. However I was very disappointed with the packing. The staff apparently did not put enough cushioning materials in the shipping box. The contents (the 3 books are really heavy) shifted freely inside this shipping cardboard box. As a result, my books suffered a huge impact causing the corners of the hardcovers to be bent. I hope the staff at Amazon.com put in more effort in shipping their customers items with care. I have no recourse for this and returning the books will incur expensive international shipping charges.
How Davidson has been able to edit the thousands of his photographs to just over 800 is a major accomplishment in itself. To this, add the many concise commentaries he has composed for each section in the three volumes. He writes as he photographs, with compassion from both heart and soul.
The books exceeded my expectations, and are a real treasure to own.
