"[Sam Wagstaff]ransformed the landscape of collecting, making photographs a credible subject, and amassed one of the largest and broadest private photography collections in the world...the diversity of Wagstaff s taste has helped to establish the current trend in how photography is presented."--Hilton Als, "WAGSTAFF'S EYE," The New Yorker, January 13, 1997
