Gun 1, New York, 1955 photographed by William Klein (x)
“… This seems to be considered my key image… It’s fake violence, a parody. I asked the boy to point the gun at me and then look tough. He did, and then we both laughed… [I see it] as a double self-portrait. I was both the street kid trying to look tough, and the timid, good little boy on the right.”
