A Chat with Bruce Gilden About Life, Work, and Photography

Comment

Renowned British documentary photographer Martin Parr has been interviewing photographers for a series titled “Sofa Sessions: Conversations with Martin Parr.” In the latest chat, Parr sat down with iconic American street photographer Bruce Gilden to talk about his life, career, and photography.

Gilden discusses how he got started in photography, his personal inspirations, engaging with subjects, his trademark style of using his flash, and thoughts on knowing the history of photography (and whether it’s important to one’s work).
