Happy Birthday, Larry Sultan

On this day in 1946, one of photo history's greatest shooters was born: Larry Sultan, who died in 2009. Click-through for a selection of his work:

Larry Sultan: Katherine Avenue

Larry Sultan I like this image because of the mood it conveys. The husband and wife appear to be indifferent to each other. Some things indicate they are close, and are amrried etc, such as the similarities in the clothes and the like. However, teh husband unwavering attention to the TV set, and the wife's pose suggest a cold, rather unloving relationship. Although they are pictured as being very close, you get the idea that they don't really get on, or talk that much.
