MagnumTime Interview with Bruce Gilden


Bruce Gilden
Photographer (Member of Magnum Photos since 1998)

“At the end of the day, I really have confidence in myself because I think that I can actually be proud of what I have done, considering from where I started. And it is not being arrogant. It’s just that nobody knows where you started from. Nobody knows the fears that you can have,  and I have conquered all my fears. For example, I’m someone who fears violence, and I’m afraid of someone being violent to me, but I conquer it because if I have a fear, it’s my nature to go out and try to conquer it. And when I come home, even if I haven’t taken good pictures, at least I can look at myself in the mirror and know that I have made another step in the right direction towards doing what I would like to do.”
