"All praise Gene Smith; for me, he is the paragon of the functional photographer. He attends his themes, he sees magnificently, and he prints beautifully." ANSEL ADAMS

“I feel Gene’s photographs reflect a great turmoil. They are captured between the shirt and the skin. This camera, anchored in the heart, moves me by its integrity.” HENRI CARTIER BRESSON

W, Eugene Smith was arguably the greatest photo journalist of the twentieth century - and maybe beyond.

Johnny “Clyde” Copeland (March 27, 1937 – July 3, 1997) - Taken at Trammp’s NYC in the early 90s - I remember it well because I accidentally spilled hot coffee on the woman I was with and we had to leave - kinda quickly.
