New York City is a goldmine for a photographer on the hunt for unusual images. It has been an endless source of inspiration for Bruce Gilden who has stridden along its streets since the beginning of the 1970’s. Fascinated by the extravagance of New Yorkers, Gilden pays tribute to the singularity of the city and its inhabitants with the whimsical portraits gathered in this exhibition. Far from the usual clichés, this exhibition is an homage to the restless, crowded, authentic New York City.
