Bruce Gilden

Bruce Gilden (Detroit – Foreclosures)

As I continuously research and prepare for shooting The Broken Altar (a film about abandoned drive ins) I am constantly drawn to my favourite filmmakers, artists and photographers for inspiration and thought.  I viewed Bruce Gilden‘s work the other day to provide an aesthetic guide for my own practice.  Always striking Gilden’s photography, balancing political and social thought with stylistic grace and poetry.
