Broadway and 103rd Street by William Klein

The photograph titled “Broadway and 103rd Street,” captured by artist William Klein, is a representation of life in New York.

In the photograph, two young boys are captured in a close-up, with one aiming a toy gun directly at the camera, creating an intense point of focus. The boy holding the gun has a facial expression that suggests mischief or aggression, while the other boy, standing slightly behind him, looks on with an unreadable expression, possibly one of curiosity or concern. The setting appears to be a city street, and the close perspective creates a sense of immediacy and confrontation. This is a classic example of street photography, a genre in which William Klein has made significant contributions.
