Great stuff. I also like his commentary regarding each of those featured in his 'Finest' portraits.

The Detroit set is wonderful... all of these are wonderful.

I really like these. I particularly like that there's no feeling of detachment, there's no sense that the photographer was looking at the subject as alien from himself. Very had to do in street photography.
