Did You Know?

One of Davidson’s best-known series, Brooklyn Gang was inspired by a news story about a teenage gang called the Jokers.

Description

The museum owns several groups of images from the series taken during the same shoot at Coney Island. They provide a rare glimpse of the artist’s selection process (see 2018.694, 2018.696, 2018.697, 2018.701, 2018.706, and 2018.735). The size of these prints, and the fact that the artist printed them long after they were shot, suggest he considered all four images worthwhile.
