Biographie / Biography
Bruce Gilden was born in in 1946 Brooklyn, N.Y. and attended Penn State University where he became bored studying sociology. In 1968, after seeing the Antonioni film Blow Up, he bought his first camera. Though he took some night classes at the School of Visual Arts in New York he is basically self-taught in photography. When he was a child Gilden spent hours gazing through his bedroom window studying the activity on the street below. His fascination for street life continued and led him to his first long-term personal projects photographing in Coney Island and then to the Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Gilden, who has done extended projects on New York, Haiti, France, Ireland, India and Japan, started exhibiting as early as 1971 and has since shown his work widely in museums and galleries all over the world. The strong dynamic forms and graphic quality of his images and his in-the-face theatrical style distinguish Gilden's original vision.
Prix et bourses
Gilden has received numerous grants and awards for his work including three National Endowments for the Arts fellowships (1980, 1984 and 1992), a Villa Medicis Hors les Murs (1995), New York State Foundation for the Arts Grant (1979, 1992 and 2000), the European Award for Photography (1996) and a Japan Foundation Fellowship (1999).
