He has been called one of the great classical American portrait photographers of this era by the photo historian Michael Lesy. Over the years Thompson has explored a number of New York City neighborhoods, typically capturing the same streets day after day, for several months or years at a time. The earliest images featured here are from Coney Island in 1972, and the most recent were taken around Times Square in 2006. As an appendix, Thompson has added a selection of quotations related to the subject of photography and representation. Drawn from a lifetime of reading, these 54 quotes come from a range of sources--Stendhal, Aristotle, Heidegger and Coleridge--and are intended to concentrate the viewer''s attention towards what the act of looking at photographs really is.
