“The water was cold, and the beach still more than a hundred yards away. The bullets tore holes in  the water around me, and I made for the nearest steel obstacle. … It was still very early and very gray for good pictures,  but the gray water and the gray sky made the little men, dodging under the surrealistic designs of Hitler’s anti-invasion brain trust, very effective.” – Robert Capa, Slightly Out of Focus (1947)

“You’re looking at Lefty and his girlfriend, members of a Brooklyn gang who referred to themselves as ‘The Jokers,’ on a trip to Bear Mountain State Park. This photograph is not meant to be risqué. These were young, teenage kids who had a great deal of spirit, energy and love in lives that were reckless, unstable and oftentimes dangerous. In the words of Pauley, who was a friend of gang member Bengie, ‘We didn’t come from dysfunctional families, the whole neighborhood was dysfunctional.’

At the time, I thought it was a little strange to be photographing The Jokers on the way to a state park, a trip sponsored by the Youth Board. The gang was completely out of their element. No mean streets, not a worry on their minds, just time to explore themselves and their surroundings. They were free, and it was captivating.” – Bruce Davidson

“A girl on a Vespa on her way to ‘who knows where,’ when the light stopped her at the 72nd street crossing near the Dakota, where John Lennon would one day cross paths with his fate. She takes this moment to finesse a fingernail before she resumes her downtown journey, while I, stopping at the same crossing, but on foot, leap into the street to capture this vision of a dream girl before time takes her on her way.” – Joel Meyerowitz

“‘A fissured, empty, almost lunar landscape–seen from a bird’s-eye view. The camera hovers over it.’ So begins Sam Shepard’s script for one of my all-time favorite films: Paris, Texas, by Wim Wenders. I thought of this scene often while photographing from the rooftop of an RV in the border town of Del Rio, Texas. I also thought of the opening lines of dialogue in Paris, Texas. ‘Do you know which side of the border you’re on?’ Looking at the otherworldly landscape from above, this question seems more metaphorical than geographic. The border I’m most interested in crossing is the one between ordinary life and dreams.” – Alec Soth

“In the early 80s, I was teaching in Helsinki and would often go to Stockholm for the weekend on the ferry. This would involve buying cheap alcohol and consuming it en route. The Finnish love a sauna, and this guy is popping out to catch the cool.” – Martin Parr
