Postcards from America by Magnum Photography

Yesterday I went to a Photographers talk by Bruce Gilden, where he showed some great street portraits he's recently shot as part of Magnum Photography's 'Postcards from America' series. 

The man himself is very bolshy, feisty and brash, but i guess if you've grown up with alcoholics and been a drug addict whilst trying to be one of the worlds best street photographers you might be also. A really fascinating and engaging talk with some vivid and beautiful portraits.
