Teens; “Brooklyn Gang, Summer 1959” photo: Bruce Davidson

“They were 15, 16 years old, Polish and Irish kids. They were abandoned, there was nothing for them, they were very poor, they came from alcoholic families…they needed to be seen. No one was looking at them; no one was observing them. I could identify with that emotion in myself at that time. I could grab hold and be part of that isolation. And even within that isolation I found beauty, meaning and their vitality.” -Bruce Davidson
