Gelatin silver print, 13 x 10 in. Crocker Art Museum, gift of Lois and Barry Ramer, 2018.104.14.

"Most people don’t particularly care to be photographed. And if you ask them, the picture’s ruined. You know, they pose; it’s no good. What you want to see is something spontaneous. You don’t want to have them posing for you."

– Leon Levinstein
