Moondog by Weegee [two of my favourite artists] New York City, 1956. 
Moondog [Louis Thomas Hardin] composer, musician, poet and inventor of several musical instruments. In New York from the late 1940s until he left in 1972, he could often be found on 6th Avenue between 52nd and 55th Street wearing a cloak and Viking-style helmet, sometimes busking or selling music, but often just standing silent and still. He was widely recognized as “the Viking of 6th Avenue” by the passersby and residents who had no idea that this seemingly homeless eccentric standing on “Moondog’s corner” was a respected and recorded composer and musician.
Weegee [Arthur Fellig] photographer and photojournalist, known for his stark black and white street photography. Weegee worked in Manhattan, New York City’s Lower East Side as a press photographer during the 1930s and ’40s, and he developed his signature style by following the city’s emergency services and documenting their activity. Much of his work depicted unflinchingly realistic scenes of urban life, crime, injury and death. Weegee published photographic books and also worked in cinema, initially making his own short films and later collaborating with film directors such as Jack Donohue and Stanley Kubrick.

Simplicity is everything. After having exhausted all the difficulties…then simplicity emerges with all its charm, like art’s final seal.
Whoever wants to obtain this immediately will never achieve it; you can’t begin with the end.
Chopin, quoted by his student Friederike Müller-Streicher
