“The story, as I explained it [to Jimmy],” Dennis Stock wrote, “was to reveal the environments that affected and shaped the unique character of James Byron Dean. We felt a trip to his hometown, Fairmount, Indiana, and to New York, the place of his professional beginnings, would best reveal those influences…. I would solicit an assignment guarantee to cover expenses. The obvious magazine to approach was LIFE…. It took only a week for LIFE to approve the assignment.”
New Yorkers: On April 2, Milk Gallery will present the work of Dennis Stock. In celebration, look back at some of his iconic images of James Dean.
