In over 50 years, Magnum Photographer Bruce Gilden has made his style of street photography instantly recognisable: emotionally engaging, close-up photographs of real people. His trademark ranges from flash-lit black and white “street scenes” to a series of equally identifiable “faces”. Gilden’s work distils the variety, character and movement of the street.
This year The URBAN Photo Awards has introduced the Bruce Gilden Special Prize in his honour: a special section dedicated to strictly “street” Projects and Portfolios destined to be part of a prestigious and unique photographic volume, edited by Bruce Gilden himself.
The book will contain 7-8 portfolios selected by him, together with one of his unpublished projects, and will be premiered at Trieste Photo Days 2021. The selected projects will also be exhibited in a group exhibition during the festival. We will unveil the prestigious location as soon as possible!
