James Dean - Times Square
Photograph by Dennis Stock
"The unforgettable image of James Dean, hunched in his black overcoat, bearing the weight of a generation on his shoulders."
- Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
"A very famous photograph of James Dean taken in Times Square in 1955. He is walking in the rain, cigarette dangling from his lips, the beauty of 1950's New York in varying shades of black and grey -- foggy, misty and utterly compelling -- in short a perfect picture... perfect composition, perfect subject, perfect era, perfect mood."
- Gail Levin, filmmaker
