‘I felt the function of a photograph was to have it seen by as many people as possible, and newspapers and magazines are one of the best ways. Naturally things printed in a magazine won’t have the photographic quality of the thing itself. But I felt that the image was more important than its print quality.’
Ben Shahn, 1964
