Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 9.56.06 AM

Photographer Bruce Gilden is a legend amongst so many photographers and especially in the Magnum Photo agency. Very recently the agency shared a new video showcasing the photographer doing what he does: walking around the the streets and photographing people with a flash in their face. While there are loads of photographers condemn his tactics, he takes photos that are quite telling of the people he shoots.

Much of what he’s shooting looks a lot like his previous work: flash in the face, black and white photos, capturing people as they go about their lives on the street.

You can watch Gilden talk about his work in the video after the jump. What do you think of him and his work? We’d love to hear in the comments below.
