Lot Essay

"Katz’s people simply existed, somewhere. They stayed in the picture as solutions of a formal problem, neither existential nor lost, neither deprived nor dismayed. They were completely mysterious, pictorially, because there seemed to be no apparent intent of effect. They knew they were there." - F. O'Hara
