URBAN 2021: the projects selected for the book-tribute to Bruce Gilden + Exhibition in Rome!

The president of the jury of URBAN Photo Awards 2021 Bruce Gilden has personally selected the projects that will be published on Real People – A tribute to Bruce Gilden, the photographic volume in honor of him, born as a special prize in the context of the competition.

“I’m a very tough editor of my own photography”, Gilden writes in the introduction of the book, “and I’m the same when I’m asked to look at other people’s work. In the submissions, I was looking for various styles and different ways of approaching familiar subjects and scenes. In my estimation, I think I chose some solid work that ranges from traditional to more contemporary.”

The Real People volume, which will be presented at the URBAN 2021 awards ceremony during the upcoming Trieste Photo Days, opens with a “best of” section with photos by Gilden himself, and continues with ten projects that pay homage to the New York master’s street photograhy.

Here are the ten selected authors and projects:

  • Carlo TrainiPromenade
  • Fabrizio SpucchesWorking Class Virus
  • Forrest Walker – Populous
  • Giedo Van Der Zwan Pier To Pier
  • Maria PansiniSaints, Thieves And Sailors
  • Maurizio LeonardiNeapolitans Of Parthenope
  • Paula KajzarSee Me, Feel Me… Heal Me. Emotional Transfer
  • Simon JohanssonThe World Shadow
  • Stanley RobbenCraving
  • Ximena HinzpeterMy Own People

At the end of the book, a “bonus” section for the honorable mentions, with photos by Alessio Toce, Andrea Scirè, Gabriele Micalizzi, Giancarlo Zuccarone, Jean-Pierre Baud, Maude Bardet and Mike Perry.

PRE-ORDERS OPEN. Anyone wishing to purchase a copy of the book can do so at this link. The book will be officially released in November. It is possible to pick-up the book for free directly at the Trieste Photo Days info point (Sala Xenia, Riva 3 Novembre corner via Mazzini) from 29 to 31 October 2021, or choose the shipment (which will take place in November in any case).

A selection of the ten projects, together with works by Bruce Gilden, will be exhibited at the Umberto Mastroianni Gallery, at the Musei di San Salvatore in Lauro, in the heart of Rome. A prestigious exhibition made possible thanks to the Centro Studi dell’opera di Umberto Mastroianni and the publishing house Il Cigno GG Edizioni, which we thank for their availability and indispensable collaboration.

The exhibition will be part of the “legs” of the Photo Days Tour 2021 and will be presented on Saturday 2 October 2021 and will remain open until 23 October.
