Magnum Photos Now - Bruce Gilden In Conversation With Emma Chetcuti

Iconic Magnum photographer Bruce Gilden is joined in conversation by Emma Chetcuti, Director at Multistory, to discuss his distinct approach to photography.

It was Magnum Photos founder Robert Capa who famously professed “if your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough”, but it was iconic Magnum Photographer Bruce Gilden who made this dictum his defining factor. 
 
For Gilden, physical proximity to his subjects is paramount, which, combined with his signature use of flash, make for photographs that invite the viewer to explore his subjects’ imperfections in the most minute and vivid detail. 
 
In conversation with Emma Chetcuti, director at Multistory, this latest instalment of Magnum Photos Now, will explore what distance means in photography for the photographer, the subject, but also for the viewer.
