Cherry Blossom

Cherry Blossom

Bruce GILDEN

Publisher: Thames & Hudson

A collection of Bruce Gilden's acclaimed Japanese photographs

Shot between 1995 and 1999 during two residencies and several visits, Bruce Gilden’s “Cherry Blossom” presents iconic and lesser known shots from the New York master street photographer’s time in Japan. Every photograph presents a powerful, inexhaustible portrait of a momentary encounter with characters from all walks of life – Gilden interacted (with his signature in-your-face style) with members of the yakuza and motorcycle gangs as well as with salaryman and homeless people. His unique and unconventional photographs show a side of Japan that is usually hidden, captured in Gilden’s inimitably brash and compelling style.

"In “Cherry Blossom”, Gilden tells the story of these voyages and the ties he maintains with Japan in a rare introductory text. The stories told alongside these pictures – whether an anecdote or a dialogue with their characters – render the American photographer’s vision even more contemporary than ever."
