Presentation by Editions Xavier Barral:
" New York 1978-1984, the first images of the North American photographer and member of the Magnum Photos agency, recently discovered in his archives after moving house and published in this book for the first time. Among the thousands of original images, most of which are new, even for their author, Bruce Gilden has selected around a hundred.
This historic archive, resurfacing forty years later, portrays a timeless New York, his native city, and reveals a little-known chapter of the artist's work: images taken without a flash and almost exclusively horizontally – the opposite of what he was to become famous for years later. The interview accompanying the photographs, conducted by Sophie Darmaillacq, explores the photographer's development through his personal background but also his influences and relationship to others.
Lost and Found already reveals the elements characteristic of Bruce Gilden's images: sustained movement and tension, as well as an instinctive and irreverent affection for his subjects – in perfect complicity with his city. "
Texts by Sophie Darmaillacq, short text titled "Mes petites histoires", short biography, and selected bibliography IN FRENCH ONLY.
