The provoking photography of Bruce Gilden - A Beautiful Catastrophe

Bruce Gilden - A Beautiful Catastrophe by Maciej Dakowicz

"A Beautiful Catastrophe" is the craziest photography book I have seen so far. I just bought it second hand on Amazon for less than £10 and it was a great buy. In this book Bruce shoots in the streets of New York with a Leica camera. He shoots strangers. He doesn't ask for permission. And he uses a flash on cord. He is big and scares lots of people suddenly jumping in front of them and blinding them with his flash. Crazy stuff.

and he says: "I'm known for taking pictures very close, and the older I get, the closer I get." yeah, we can see that...
