Being Bruce Gilden

Being Bruce Gilden


While Winogrand may have been the master, there’s no other street photographer quite like Bruce Gilden. He jumps in front of his subjects, startling them with his camera, and shoots. ìIf you can smell the street by looking at the photo," Gilden says, "it's a street photograph." There’s a great video of Gilden at work, and it’s fun to watch whether you’re interested in the great photography or the shock value of his brash approach. One thing’s for sure: you can’t argue with the success of his in-your-face street photography style. There was even a mini-documentary made about Gilden called "Head On." It was filmed just last year and it’s available at vimeo.com.
