William Klein
Candy Store, Amsterdam Avenue
New York
1954-55

This photograph has great movement yet the subject matter is very static. Although the composition is utilizing the bulls-eye effect, it is still very strong. There is a sense of street life that is depicted through this photograph that intrigues me.

Update:  This photograph deserves to be archived with the Masters of Photography because it is innovative for it's time.  This photograph looks Photoshopped, but it is obviously not.  Digital photography was invented way later than this was taken.  It looks solarized in a way, which is achievable in the darkroom, but how many people were actually solarizing their photographs during this time?  Not many that I can recall.
