Henri Dauman : Bronx vs. Miami Beach


The 1960s saw the emergence of a new kind of social organization in the United States. With empathy, and not without irony, Henri Dauman bore witness to this social divides. On the one hand, the New York middle class took its summer vacations in Miami and  displayed their wealth via luxurious interior designs of questionable taste. On the other hand, a new fringe of the population, the “teenagers,” invented their own codes and ways of being consumers. In the streets and parks of the Big Apple, everything and everyone mixed together, without preconceived connections, without hang-ups.

For Life, Henri Dauman, following the American documentary photographic tradition, portrayed another type of youth. “The Savage Nomads Gang” illuminates new forms of urban rebellion.
