Head On by Bruce Gilden

Sometimes controversial but always interesting, Gilden has built a forty year career out of photographing strong characters and human peculiarities. A fearless New Yorker, Gilden’s Brooklyn upbringing has endowed him with a keen eye for observing urban behaviours and customs. In this new commission for the Format International Photography Festival, Gilden turns his lens to the street life and inhabitants of Derby, UK.
