Bruce Gilden is probably best known for his work on the streets of New York, focusing on the city’s characters and outsiders.

He was born in 1946 and grew up in Brooklyn, New York. After taking photography classes at the School of Visual Arts, he embarked on his first major project: recording tourists and pleasure-seekers visiting Coney Island, but he has also spent many years on projects devoted on projects in Haiti, Japan, and Ireland.)

This series brings together the best work of the world’s greatest photographers, in an attractive format and at an affordable price. Handsome and collectable, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full page reproductions, a critical introduction and a full bibliography. The series was awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography, New York.
