Image by Bruce Gilden. USA. New York City. 1984.

New York City, the unique metropolis that Le Corbusier has called “a beautiful catastrophe,” is a natural home to Bruce Gilden. Since 1981, Gilden has been roaming the streets of the city, capturing its characters and eccentricities with his confrontational, highly energetic style and exuberant vision. In A Beautiful Catastrophe, Magnum photographer Bruce Gilden celebrates a trademark style with abandon, firmly ensconcing him in the pantheon of New York City street poets.

A Beautiful Catastrophe is a Magnum Photos touring exhibition.

On Mon 14 May, 7pm Bruce Gilden will give a presentation at Light House on his 25-year body of street work and speak about his current exhibition A Beautiful Catastrophe. Cost: £5. Buy your tickets for the talk here or on the door, but get them in advance!

There is also a fantastic opportunity to take part in a 3-day workshop led by Gilden from Tue 15 – Thu 17 May. The workshop will be an intensive 3 days. Photographers who have had work published or exhibited will get the most out of it. All participants must bring a portfolio of their work. For more info and to book a place click here.
