Bruce Gilden: Lost and Found

Text by Sophie Darmaillacq, Bruce Gilden.

In the thick of New York: Bruce Gilden raw and unseen

After recently moving house, Bruce Gilden discovered hundreds of contact prints and negatives in his personal archives, from work undertaken in New York, his native city, between 1978 and 1984. From these thousands of images, most of which are new even to their author, Gilden has selected around a hundred. Extending from the desire to revisit the work of his youth, this historic archive constitutes an inestimable treasure.

An extraordinary New York is portayed here, revealing an unknown facet of Gildenís oeuvre. With all the energy of a young man in his thirties, and with no flash (before Gilden became famous for its almost systematic use), Gilden launched an assault on New York in a visibly tense atmosphere. In this extraordinary gallery of portraits, the compositionsómostly horizontalósimmer with energy, bursting with the most diverse characters, as though Gilden intended to include within the frame everything that caught his eye.

In this book, we see the guiding tropes of the work that was to make Gilden famous: sustained movement and tension, unrivalled spirit, and an instinctive and irreverent affection for his subjects, perfectly in cahoots with his city.

Bruce Gilden (1946) is a street photographer from Brooklyn, New York. Over the years he has produced long and detailed photographic projects in New York, Haiti, France, Ireland, India, Russia, Japan, England and America. Gilden has published 18 monographs, among them Facing New York (1992), Bleus (1994), Haiti (1996, European Publishers Award for Photography); After the Off (1999), Go (2000), Coney Island (2002), A Beautiful Catastrophe (2004), Foreclosures (2013) and A Complete Examination of Middlesex (2014).

Gildenís pictures shine as prime examples of a photographic mode that has all but disappeared.

Long lost NYC photos by Magnum master, Bruce Gilden

Long lost NYC photos by Magnum master, Bruce Gilden

"To make a long story short, Iím not a very organized person and when I moved from the loft where I had been living for thirty-five years in New York City, I piled up thousands of negatives in cardboard boxes and never opened them for three years. Last year in the summer, I was home with someone who worked for me and in a cleaning frenzy, we started looking at all the old New York prints that I had in my studio in Beacon where I live now. I remembered some of them and others not, so I decided to go through my old negatives and contact sheets. I spent practically the whole summer of 2018 looking through more than two thousand rolls. It was an anthropologistís job and when I discovered these images, I was very surprised because I didnít think that I had anything on these rolls. There are no clinkers. When I say 'clinkers' Iím being hard on myself. So I mean that there are very few mediocre pictures: Iíve looked at them numerous times now and theyíre good through and through. I had found a gold mine!
Right away I thought this is going to be a fantastic New York book! Itís even tighter than my two other books and there will hardly be any flash photos in this book. So what was interesting about the whole story is that it felt like I had created a whole new body of work, and if I had died this work would never have seen the light of day. Nobody has my eye or my patience to go through it all, so it would have been lost forever. And thatís why we gave it the title of Lost and Found. ó Bruce Gilden continue to blog
