Famed sculptor George Segal takes to the streets armed with camera; he writes "I took to walking the streets in New York and New Jersey with a camera loaded with black-and-white film, my head loaded with memories of those marvelous Farm Security Administration photos of weather-beaten walls, bodies, and faces, sprung from the photographers' radical interweaving of social and esthetic theories. ...Both New York and New Jersey felt energetic, jagged, chaotic, fragmented, in continual decay and rebirth, with the glory and sadness of the process evident everywhere. The pleasures of photography equal the pleasures of sculpture and drawing." (George Segal, 1993).
