After a year photographing a tough Brooklyn street gang, in 1960 Davidson took a much less tense assignment, to photograph Britain through American eyes.
Hired by the British lifestyle periodical The Queen to photograph Britain in 1960, Davidson spent three months traveling around the United Kingdom to shed light on the changes Britons were experiencing in the decades after World War II. He was democratic in his selection of subjects, shooting London’s poorest districts, rural culture, and mining operations in addition to England’s upper class.
