Absolutely love it! Just to think that human faces have been pictured since the dawn of photography, and yet Bruce Gilden is able to give this incredibly basic concept such a new meaning and relevance!
Although, it is a bit close to his previous "Faces" project and not as strong (see picture below). But I can see that the Leica S with its high resolution gave his latest work more of a punch than the previous 35mm film work, and the amount of details that is captured in the human face photos make it much more dramatic.
Bruce Gilden is known for changing his style of photography ever couple of years and I cannot wait to see in which direction he will go next!

Exactly, and this makes his work so unique. I saw a few videos of him and are always amazed how much time he spends talking to his subject (sometimes confronting them), to the point where he often forgets to take photos.
