"I'm Kind of Nosy That Way"

"My impulse was to explore...and to find myself through exploration."—Bruce Davidson

I often turn WNYC off and switch to podcasts or music when the Leonard Lopate show rolls around at noon—but today he did a great interview with the distinguished Magnum photographer Bruce Davidson, in which he discusses his outlook on street photography. (As a side point, I find it interesting that like Lee Friedlander, Davidson has made a transition from photographing people to photographing plants. In general I'm not that interested in photographs of plants but maybe that happens later.)
