William Gedney was an American photographer whose work had little recognition before his death in 1989. He documented a visual diary of street scenes from America, India and around Europe, choosing graceful moments between siblings, coal miners and Hindu worshippers. Gedney created an honest and emotional picture of a life around him at the time. There is something so raw about these images, evoking a sad reality that continues to prevail. His photographs and writings were left to friend Lee Friedlander and are now housed at the Duke University Rare book, manuscripts and special collections department.
