first pop photographer

"I didn't really dig French photographers. Robert Doisneau [1912-1994]. Others. Sentimental. Romantic. Humanistic. Fuck That."

Everyone is a kind of actor in front of William Klein's [born 1928] lens; everything turns into a kind of show.
Klein was inspired by New York's "Weegee the Famous" [1899-1968]; some Weegee work here.

An earlier reference to photography here.
