Catalogue Note

'LIFE wanted me to photograph "Eisenstaedt's Paris"...a knowledgeable reporter worked with me.  Every time I raised my camera she said, "Oh, Capa has taken that," or Cartier-Bresson...I told her, "Look, I have to do it my way...I must look and wait, and that's something I do best alone..."  In the Parc de Montsouris I discovered an outdoor puppet show...It was wonderful watching the children's faces at the moment the bad dragon was slain...I have never made a better picture of expressions on the human face' (LIFE Faces, pp. 12-13).
