1986 Pulitzer Prize, Feature Photography, Tom Gralish, The Philadelphia Enquirer “I like any kind of food. Whatever’s there, I buy it. Hot dog one day, the next Chinese food, roast beef sandwich.” — Walter, Philadelphia, homeless In the winter of 1985, Philadelphia Inquirer photographer Tom Gralish steps out or his life and into the lives of the city’s street people. "I didn't know much about these guys. So I decided to show what their day is like. I wanted it to be straightforward 'doc photography.’ Go out and sec what you can find." Gralish walks the streets with his camera. "I hooked up with one little group. It was like a community — enough vendors to be nice to them, enough steam grates, a liquor store nearby, a hospital, lots of commuters to panhandle — everything they needed." Some men live on fire escapes; others in alleys. Walter lives on a sidewalk heating grate. "Walter is one of the guys who is hard to reach because he talks to himself and rants to people on the street. Everyone knows him; people who live and work in the neighborhood give him change. He was one of those guys who was hot and cold to me." Eventually, Walter allows Gralish to photograph him- "People like it when you pay attention to them. These guys had disdain for society and the rules: that's why they objected to the shelters. They saw themselves as the last free men."

Henri Cartier-Bresson (Brasserie Lipp, 1969, París) "Actually, I'm not all that interested in the subject of photography. Once the picture is in the box, I'm not all that interested in what happens next. Hunters, after all, aren't cooks" ~Henri Cartier-Bresson Art Democracy´s album IN BLACK & WHITE
Henri Cartier Bresson - Brasserie Lipp I always start a creative work with this photo
Brasserie Lipp, Paris, 1969. Photograph by Henri Cartier-Bresson. Henri Cartier-Bresson (8/22/1908-8/3/2004) was a French photographer considered to be the father of photojournalism. He was an early adopter of 35 mm format, and the master of candid photography. He helped develop the street photography or life reportage style that was coined The Decisive Moment that has influenced generations of photographers who followed.

The Ruins Of Dresden, 1945. Taken after the city suffered devastating bombings in World War II, facades have never looked as ghostly.
A view taken from Dresden's town hall of the destroyed Old Town after the allied bombings between February 13 and 15, 1945. Some 3,600 aircraft dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on the German city. The resulting firestorm destroyed 15 square miles of the city center, and killed more than 22,000.

Garry Winogrand: World's Fair - New York City, New York. It's interesting to note that when people think of the 1960s, they tend to think everyone dressed like hippies. In reality, most people dressed like the people in this photo. We had a dress code in school, and girls weren't even allowed to wear pants to high school until the early 1970s. Boys had to wear nice trousers with a belt, tucked in sports shirt and clean leather dress-type shoes. Hair had to be short and "well groomed".

“vintagegal: Gun 1, New York, 1955 photographed by William Klein (x) “… This seems to be considered my key image… It’s fake violence, a parody. I asked the boy to point the gun at me and then look tough. He did, and then we both laughed… [I see it] as a double self-portrait. I was both the street kid trying to look tough, and the timid, good little boy on the right.” ”
