Photo Culture #2: Bruce Davidson

In the 1950s Bruce Davidson runs into a Brooklyn youth gang, the Jokers. The boys and girls of the gang allow the photographer to frequent their places, posing for him and making him take even the most intimate moments. The “Brooklyn Gang” series testifies rebellion, anger, fear and alienation of this group of young people, becoming one of the most precious photographic documents of its time.
