1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
"A defining characteristic of Bruce Gilden's photography is his creative attraction to what he calls 'characters', and he has been tracking them down all through his career. Growing up in Brooklyn with what he describes as a 'tough guy' of a father, Bruce Gilden developed a love of the streets, often calling them his 'second home'. The unique energy of the streets mesmerized Bruce, an energy that can momentarily expose something inside people that generally stays hidden. This new body of work, however, is somewhat of a departure for him in that these tightly cropped, full face images can be seen as 'collaborative' portraits. His subjects engage directly with the camera, and the photographs are all taken with permission."--From publisher's website

Bruce Gilden : hey, mister, throw me some beads! by Bruce Gilden( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"'Hey Mister, throw me some beads!' is a phrase that is iconic in New Orleans' Mardi Gras street argot. Strings of beads, doubloons, and other trinkets are passed out or thrown from the floats in the Mardi Gras parades to spectators lining the streets. In 1974, Bruce Gilden was a young photographer when he first went down to Mardi Gras to shoot his first personal essay away from his home city New York. But when Gilden first stepped foot in New Orleans, he found himself in 'a pagan dream where you can be what you want to be.' So Gilden became a regular, making seven trips down to the mayhem of Bourbon Street between 1974 and 1982. The energy, the mentality, social / cultural mores of Mardi Gras were all new for Gilden, but he captured the carnival crowds with the same raw intensity and poignancy that characterize his most iconic New York street photographs

Contact ( visu )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Contact sheets are the first overview for the photographer of what he has captured on film. They give a unique and intimate view of the style, methods and thoughts of the artist. Henri Cartier-Bresson himself, founder of the Magnum Photo agency, was strongly opposed to the idea of disclosing his contact sheets. However, this series reveals that the process by which an image is chosen reveals the multi-layered meeting point between the photographer's personal style and philosophy and the subject being captured on the other side of the lens

Bruce Gilden 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. Gilden is probably best known for his work on the streets of New York, focusing on the city's characters and outsiders, but he has also spent many years on projects devoted on projects in Haiti, Japan, and Ireland. This book explores Gilden's life and work
