The name Bruce Gilden is synonymous with striking images - his unique and confrontational style has made him a stand-out Icon in the pantheon of legendary American street photographers.

Born in Brooklyn in 1946, he has produced long detailed bodies of work in Coney Island, New York City, Haiti, Japan, France, Ireland, England and across America. Gilden initially worked in black and white film for years, producing one of a kind candid images of passers-by made with Leica and flash on hand. He has now expanded his famous modus operandi during the last decade to encompass digital colour photography and posed portraits. Gilden's work has been exhibited in Museums and galleries since the 1970s and he has published no less than 23 monographs of his work.

Now Leica Gallery London is showing Bruce Gilden's unseen ongoing portrait series taken on the street in Bogotá, Colombia. These wall portraits continue to reflect Gilden's attraction to vibrant and out of the mainstream characters. And this time in Bogotá, walking the streets of the capital’s working class neighbourhoods and inspired by the exuberant colours of the city’s walls, the street master found the perfect frame to shine a powerful light on ordinary passers by.
