Statement from Bruce Gilden on the back of print “Untitled”
“I thought I couldn’t be better than Henri Cartier-Bresson so I decided to be the best Bruce Gilden I can be.
At that time the cops would chase away the people selling Frankfurters with their carts on the street to give them a ticket. Tis guy was running away from them with his cart so as not to get a summons. The dog in the background completed the dance.”
