Bruce Gilden and his photography are inextricably linked. Hours as a child looking at tough guys on the bustling streets of Brooklyn from his second-story window shaped Gilden’s attraction to his photographic subjects. Gilden is a street photographer. He is best known for his candid close-up photos of people on the streets of New York City, using a flashgun. He has had numerous books of his work published, and is the subject of the documentary film: Misery Loves Company: The Life and Death of Bruce Gilden (2007). He has worked in black & white photography most of his life, but recently has begun shooting color and digital in recent years. Learn More . . .
