Detroit – next to New York, of course – is the US city that particularly fascinates Bruce Gilden. In the sixties, Motown Music was the catalyst, today it is the unconditional will to survive of the people who have remained there. In 2009, he experienced the peak of the housing crisis, and now he has returned.

Bruce Gilden

Gilden was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1946. Fascinated by Michelangelo Antonioni’s film ‘Blowup’, he purchased his first camera in 1968. Shortly afterwards he began working on two series covering the Mardi Gras in New Orleans and the beach at Coney Island.
His favourite places for working are and remain the streets of America’s major cities: right in there and up close. Gilden was awarded the 2013 Guggenheim Grant. He is a member of the Magnum Agency.
