Bruce Davidson’s 1959 “Brooklyn Gang” series
A new Bob Dylan video features photographs from Bruce Davidson’s 1959 “Brooklyn Gang” series to illustrate the song. In the spring of 1959, Davidson met a group of Brooklyn teens called “The Jokers”. That summer, he photographed the entire gang in their natural habitat, from hanging out late at night on the street corner to taking a Coney Island beach trip with their girlfriends. The “Beyond Here Lies Nothin’” video will appear exclusively on Amazon’s homepage until Wednesday, April 22, in the Bob Dylan Store for 30 days thereafter.
The complete series is on the Magnum website.
