People -- this is what motivates renowned contemporary street photographer Bruce Gilden. Gilden's a street photographer from New York, best known for his candid, up-close portraits of people he sees. Often he uses his trademark flashgun, shooting in black and white.
Gilden's first project was capturing street portraits of Coney Island. Beyond NYC, he also shot images of Japan's yakuza mobsters, marginalized people, prostitutes, biker gangs and such between 1995 to 2000. The duality of individuals, having double lives, fascinates him continuously.
