Bruce Davidson - Brooklyn Gang

During the summer of 1959, Bruce Davidson followed a loosely knit “gang” of teenagers around Brooklyn, New York. His camera captured these children of the James Dean generation in booth private and public moments at the soda fountain, the tattoo parlor, Coney Island, and late night basement dance parties. The beautiful adolescents that fill the pages of this book exude a cool sensuality which came by way of the young Brando and Dean, and traveled from American shores around the world. Davidson has created an exquisite photographic elegy for a time when, in retrospect, we all seemed young.
