Photo London and Leica Camera present TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT, a talk with Leica ambassador and photographer Bruce Gilden. The talk will explore Gilden’s unique and intriguing street photography and his powerful large-scale portraits. Gilden photographs focus on strong characters and to apply Robert Capa’s mantra to his own work: “if the picture isn’t good enough, you aren’t close enough”.
Bruce Gilden joined Magnum Photos in 1998 and became a Guggenheim Fellow in 2013.
Bruce Gilden’s work from Farm Boys and Farm Girls USA will be on display at Photo London 2018 in the Leica Collectors Lounge located in the Fair’s new River Terrace pavilion.
The artist will also be signing books on Thursday 17 May and Saturday 19 May.
