    His "Foreclosures" for Magnum in Motion is not the usual in your face Gilden style. He connect very well with the people and their plight.

    Thanks for sharing those videos. Magnum seems to be a never ending source of interesting photojournalism. I had seen the foreclosures stuff before ...depressing...my parents home just north of Ft Myers ....its value dropped by 50% in one year and we were happy to sell it .

    Gotta love the way he holds the strobe in one hand, the camera in the other.

    Is that an old Vivitar 285??? If there is one thing I miss it is those cheap and robust Vivitar strobes for event candids. I used to make my own battery packs from $12 rechargeable 6v gel-cell batteries, Velcro it to the top of the 285 and shoot all night long.

    I have not been a fan of his "in your face" street style but in that venue he shined and his photographs have always been dynamite!

    i've always envied his style as he has such a sense of fun and whimsy. his images are grand! i wish i'd been born a foot taller and male. he's a ****ing hoot!

    Great stuff. I have not always been a big fan of his work, but I do admire his style. It is very unique.

    Plus, when you mix Gilden with a bunch of crazy *** Texans, the result is pure magic.
