James Dean photographed by Dennis Stock in New York,1955.
Until 1953 Dean was often difficult to locate: He rented a dozen hotel rooms in midtown, none of them for more than a few weeks at a time. There was, he thought, good reason to be elusive, for his private life was often unconventional and messy. (x)

Jim liked the first walking shot so much that he insisted on a second, this time posing as “The Photographer.” - Roy Schatt
One day there was a knock on the door, and it was James Dean. He said, ‘You Bob Hinkle? I seen you over at the studio restaurant a couple of times.’ Well, I’d seen him, but I never had met him. He was kind of a loner, quiet. He ate by himself. He said, ‘I’d like to work with you in playing Jett Rink. I’d like you to help me create that character.’ He offered to pay me out of his own pocket but I said that’s not necessary. I asked him when he wanted to start. He told me, ‘I’d like to start today.’
