Mary, the Bruce Davidson link is above; I searched on Palm Trees and got a truly spectacular result.

Bruce Davidson referred to his photos of plant life in Paris. Can any of these photos be viewed in NYC? Has a book been published that contains examples? Also, he said he was working on a book of plant life in Los Angeles. Are any of these to be seen?

Many thanks,

His comment on a child's "pure" pictures reminds me of when I gave a 5-year-old my camera so she could take pictures at a family gathering.

She took closeups of everyone; one after the other, they were unbelievable.

Because the one thing Annie Leibovitz, et. al. can never get in their pics is the look of sheer, plain, relaxed, unalloyed love for the photographer.

What is he doing now? Advertising to pay bills or doesnt' need to.

I can't help but ask if he has gotten involved in the digital thing and his view on digital. My guess is he is still doing film ...and if so does he do his own lab work.
