“John Goodmanʼs camera, is not an instrument of detachment, analysis, or judgment, but an iris of an eye that is our own, dissolving ostensible barriers between object and subject. His intention is to make feel, not merely see the world of the Times Square Gym.
—Joyce Carol Oates’ review of Goodman’s The Times Square Gym Book.
