It's like a long gone America.

It's one of the must-see exhibitions of the year.

He framed familiar subjects in a manner that renders them remarkable -- a skill that quickly gained him the recognition and respect of his contemporaries.

[His work] is marked by a singular level of intimacy and compassion.

Whether it’s the dark undertow of childhood poverty or the loneliness of his fellow Korean War draftees, his perceptive eye is inseparable from an openhearted optimism.

This is New York School small-camera work at its best — intimate, engaged, almost intrusive... a man who loves people, takes unalloyed pleasure in seeing them enjoy themselves.

[He was] one of the most accomplished recorders of the American experience."

[A] loving portrait of a remarkable man. Worth seeking out by anyone with an interest in the history of photography... to set alongside recent portraits of Vivian Maier, Robert Frank and Gordon Parks.
