A companion to the eponymous exhibition, this volume traces the evolution of the Davis photographycollection through the many people who have influenced its course. Theselections are organized unconventionally, by date of acquisition; this allows forserendipitous and revealing juxtapositions, surprising connections, and startling revelations. Featuring sixty-five contributors, the book includes introductory essays by Lisa Fischman, Lucy Flint, Ann Gabhardt, and Eugenia Parry, along with beautifully illustrated entries by a host of luminaries: Rachael Arauz, David Bakalar, Rebecca Bedell, Patricia G.
