Beauty Papers by Bruce Gilden

This body of work shot for Beauty Papers’ sixth issue, shot by Bruce Gilden has been selected for CR’s annual photography award scheme, The Photography Annual

Commissioned for Beauty Papers’ sixth issue, on the theme of ‘Big’, Bruce Gilden brought his unclinching approach to this series of portraits. Gilden and Beauty Papers Editor Maxine Leonard cast the series together in New York and all those who took part were shown Gilden’s signature style, where he uses a flash gun to capture close-up, candid shots of his subjects’ faces.
