"A 25-year-old Bruce Davidson investigates a teenage gang in Brooklyn capturing the spirit of post-war youth culture in New York"
"In 1959, Bruce Davidson read about the teenage gangs of New York City. Connecting with a social worker to make initial contact with a gang in Brooklyn called The Jokers, Davidson became a daily observer and photographer of this alienated youth culture. This work – his first major project, undertaken when he was 25 – not much older than the youths depicted in the work – became the classic photo project, Brooklyn Gang: a collection of images of tough people and tough lives that captured a vision of youth in post-war New York City."
