Remains for me, as fresh today as when I bought my first copy 55 years ago and is without doubt as seminal a work as Frank' s THE AMERICANS. The photographs resonate with energy that is in strict contrast to the considered approach of Cartier-Bresson and The Decisive Moment. Further, in addition to producing these images, Klein also designed the layout of the book. As a young aspiring painter at the time, it simply introduced me to a whole new way of thinking and looking. One of four volumes on great cities (NEW YORK, ROME, MOSCOW TOKYO, and always seen as a second option to his first on New York, I still love this one above all and I am gratified that it retains the original cover that first graced the cover of this volume, together with an image of Sophia Loren, complete with an added moustache - oh yes, oh yes.....Gus Wylie
