'The book stirs up paradoxical visions of Weegee's New York and Brassai's Paris, something between the Weimar Republic and the world of Warhol where everyone's famous for 15 minutes.'

 

American Photographer on X-Capees

 

"f-Stop has created a photographic language akin to the subversive language of New Wave by his idiosyncratic framing and the use of the flash at low speeds. For (him) weird subject matter necessitates a weird angle..."

 

"...if this photograph (Wendy O. Williams) of a headless torso is unusual from the standpoint of news photography, it focuses on the singer's animal sexuality - her contribution to New Wave."
