The "LOOK”, as Steve called it, is a collection of the "perfect moment"where he permanently captured the 1/60th of a second, when the subject makes a deep and true connection into the lens with their eyes, exposing parts of their soul that reveal the complex story of their life.
Steve's "genius" was not technical, it was "emotional"... he simply knew how to deeply connect to his subject and he knew the instant to press the button. Amazing.
Most of these people, he only knew for less then 30 seconds. Every time, after he thanked them for the photo, he would kiss the camera with passion and give a goofy "Gladstone" laugh of "HEE HEE". Aways a joy to watch him work.
