"In the 1960s and 70s, he defined street photography as an attitude as well as a style – and it has laboured in his shadow ever since, so definitive are his photographs of New York.”

- Sean O'Hagan, The Guardian

“Every photograph is a battle of form versus content”

“Great photography is always on the edge of failure.”

“The photograph should be more interesting or more beautiful than what was photographed.”
