Bruce Davidson is a photographer, now 80 he lives out of state, but once upon a day, he made his home in Brooklyn, and chose to photograph gang members after hearing news of gang fights in the city.
The UK's Daily Mail published this piece written by Lizzie Edmonds:
"These extraordinary photographs document the fascinating lives of a teen gang living in Brooklyn, New York, in the 1950s.
The images are part of a collection called Brooklyn Gang, and were taken by renowned photographer Bruce Davidson, 80, who has dedicated his career to documenting New York City life and culture.
This collection is especially interesting as it follows a group of teens, who called themselves the Jokers, who lived in the city in 1959."
