Coney Island Bruce Gilden - Signed by Bruce Gilden
1890. Condition: Très bon état. On the outskirts of the five boroughs sits Coney Island, the world famous pleasure beach that has been the summer destination for New Yorkers since its heyday in the 1890s. Toward the end of the 1960s, just one year after he first picked a camera, Bruce Gilden took the subway train through Brooklyn to capture the sunbathers, the weekenders, and the sideshow freaks who stroll the Boardwalk and sprawl on the sands of Coney Island. As the area's reputation slipped, Gilden continued to take pictures. The result is this book, which gathers together a selection of his Coney Island photographs from the late 60s up through the late 80s, some of which are paired with hand-written recollections, all of which testify to Gilden's ability to eke out the characters and eccentricities of daily life. Trebruk, 2002. Hardcover. Etat : Fine. 1st Edition. First edition (2002). First impression. Medium format hardback in fine condition. No internal markings. PayPal accepted, any questions please get in touch. Signed by Bruce Gilden.
