Presentation by Atelier EXB:

" This book brings together the photographs that Bruce Gilden took in Japan during two residencies and several trips between 1995 and 1999, presenting both the most iconic and half unpublished. As always, on an impulse of a few fractions of a second, the Magnum photographer approaches his subjects as closely as possible and takes them on the spot. In Tokyo and Osaka, he looks for impenetrable places and is interested in the communities that Japanese society tries to hide, especially the yakuza, motorcycle gangs, marginals...

He shows his unique vision of Japan where each image is the result of an encounter with a nervous energy or disturbing and fascinating street scenes. In the introduction, the photographer recounts his wanderings through various anecdotes and stories. "

PLEASE NOTE: We are offering the French version of this book, with texts IN FRENCH ONLY. The English version of this book, published by Thames & Hudson (Price in France 55 €), is not offered by L'Ascenseur Végétal at the moment.

Gilden, Bruce

Bruce Gilden is an American photographer, member of the Magnum Photos agency. Bruce Gilden is famous for his street portraits, often in close-ups with prominent use of a flash. In 2019, Editions Xavier Barral (French edition) and Thames & Hudson (English edition) publish the book "Lost and Found" that presents early work from Gilden's career, when his trademark style of taday was not yet full-fledged. This collaboration with both publishers is followed-up in 2021 by the publication of "Cherry Blossom", images made by Gilden in Japan over several trips between 1995 and 1999. © Portrait by Maximilian Motel

He plunges himself into it headlong, and carries us along with him in these...
