Tightly Cropped Portraits Of People On The Edge

The world is full of people who fear life on the edge, those who wish they could live on the edge and those hard cases with faces that prove every day of their life is lived on the edge.

Photographer Bruce Gilden shoots close-up portraits of the hard cases, the folks walking around with a face that shows they've lived a hard life with every line, wrinkle, scar, sore and open wound on it.

Bruce's book Face collects all the edgy and tightly cropped portraits of the street people who make squares uncomfortable, those who have fallen on hard times with the mugs to match and the odd characters he happened to meet on the road.
