Bruce Davidson/Paul Caponigro: Two American Photographers in Britain and Ireland presents the works of two influential American photographers together for the first time. The exhibition is on view now through March 2015 at the Huntington in San Marino, California and will be the last stop the show will travel to. It is the only exhibition to pair Davidson and Caponigro in such a way, being that they forged quite parallel yet distinctive career paths - particularly during the 60’s, when they were both documenting landscapes of either Great Britain or Ireland. Davidson’s photographs capture seemingly impossible moments of perfectly timed, candid, and impressionistic life at play while Caponigro’s work focuses on the meditative nature and serenity of ancient sites such dolmens, stone circles, megaliths and churches.
