The photographer Bruce Davidson is having a well-deserved moment. At the age of seventy-six, he has two exhibitions running concurrently, and a new, three-volume survey of his fifty-year career.

He also spent two years in the late sixties photographing the residents on a notorious block of East 100th Street, the subject of his show at Greenberg.
