A Complete Examination of Middlesex
“What I’m searching for when I walk the street are people I can engage with: somebody whose face, and particularly eyes, scream a story.”
– Bruce Gilden
In 2011, Bruce Gilden was commissioned by the Archive of Modern Conflict to photograph the people and places of London. Working in both colour and black and white, Bruce Gilden captured the diversity of characters that populate the streets of London. It's rare to see portraits which are so intense, full on yet intimate at the same time. The resultant book, published by The Archive Of Modern Conflict is entitled A Complete Examination of Middlesex.
Bruce Gilden, has exhibited widely around the world, and received numerous awards. What sets him apart from other photographers is his ability to see and capture the essence of a character, a place or a moment. Bruce Gilden joined Magnum Photos in 1998. He now lives in New York State.
