1. Brooklyn Gang Series - 1959

    Bruce Davidson, the iconic photographer known for his pictures of the New York City subway, The Dwarf, East 100th Street, and the Brooklyn Gang, also photographed the street gang called the Jokers, of which Bengie was the leader (last photo). video link

    Davidson is mainly interested in documenting the struggles and triumphs of people as they go through their lives - the American Dream laid bare.

    "My pictures are not escapes from reality, but a contemplation of reality, so that I can experience life in a deeper way."

    If I am looking for a story at all, it is in my relationship to the subject - the story that tells me, rather than that I tell. ”
