Statement from Thomas Hoepker on the back of print
“People often ask me, ‘What is your most important tool?’. And I reply, ‘comfortable shoes.’ Indeed, most of my pictures were made while walking through a city or a landscape. I found this particular scene while strolling through the streets of Reno, Nevada one night in 1963. I was on assignment for the German magazine Kristall. the writer, Rolf Winter, and I flew to New York, rented a car, drove across the country and back again. We had no briefing from our editors except, ‘ Give us your opinion on America. Come back ones you feel you have seen enough.’ This project led me to eventually publish a book titled Heartland, a rather critical view of the United States in the nineteen sixties. The clown at the lunch counter never saw me.”
