You know Bruce Gilden right? THE great photographer of faces. The close-up flashgun street photographer whose pictures pack a real punch. His book Haiti is incredible. When he shoots fashion, it's the truth.
The book is shot in Rome. Alessandro Michele's home. The streets paved in high contrast tonal black and white and the book itself...
...pages tipped in gold. The book is deluxe.
Wow! A portrait as rich as an Ansel Adams landscape. Epically Italian.
The power of patterns. Many of the subjects are citizens of Rome. And some are further from home. This is model and advocate Bethann Hardison returning the glare of Gilden's flash.
Classic Bruce Gilden. Always look back. And the size of those fingers! You can read more about the book and from Bruce himself on this link to Dazed.
