A documentary artist in the tradition of street photographers such as William Klein, Bruce Gilden has a sharp eye for idiosyncrasy. His distinctive use of flash showcases each subject; just as theater lighting draws us nearer to the actors on a stage. Before launching his photographic career, Gilden studied sociology and is keenly aware of how environments can define people. An expressive realist, the Magnum photographer conveys the nuances of each milieu with great integrity.
