I'm known for taking pictures very close, and the older I get, the closer I get.

— Bruce Gilden

The most colossal Bruce Gilden quotes you will be delighted to read

I love the people I photograph. I mean, they're my friends. I've never met most of them or I don't know them at all, yet through my images I live with them.


If you can smell the street by looking at the photo, it's a street photograph


There are never beginnings and endings in my work; everything just fits into place after a while.


I always said it kept me alive - photography - because it did. It was my catharsis.


I'm photographing myself out there. Not myself physically, but mentally. It's my take on the world.


Everything isn't black and white, but for me it might as well be.
