distinguish Gilden's original vision. His work has been shown widely in
museums and galleries all over the world. Gilden has received numerous
grants and awards for his work including three National Endowments for the
Arts fellowships (1980, 1984 and 1992), a Villa Medicis Hors les Murs
(1995), New York State Foundation for the Arts Grant (1979, 1992 and 2000),
the European Award for Photography (1996) and a Japan Foundation Fellowship
(1999).
In 1998, Gilden became a member of Magnum.
