"I love Puppies Behind Bars because it;s a win-win situation. You have prisoners interacting with a living creature that loves them. They learn focus, responsibility, and self-esteem, and once a prisoner is released, they have a new beginning--a skill--with which to get a fresh start."
-Doris Roberts, Actor, "Everybody Loves Raymond"
"It's a paw-fect partnership. Wet-nosed pups are turning hardened criminals at top-security New York prisons into wet-eyed softies."
-New York Post
"The most modern photographer in America. I wish I could take pictures like that."
-Andy Warhol on Christopher Makos
"I am always looking for breakthrough and talented photographers--someone who has something 'new' to say..."
-Ralph Pucci about Paul Solberg
