observe or inspire?

I was watching the Ovation Network last night and their series on photography. In this particular show they were discussing what they termed "pop photography". They stated that William Klein was the unofficial beginning of this genre. I am not sure I agree with this or understand it fully. What I do know is that Klein was always looking for an animated moment and would interact with his subjects to achieve it. That is what makes him so magical to me. He was not an observer of life but a maker of it. He is such a rebel- taking the one decisive moment and making 1000 seconds out of it. Inspiring the world to react to him and allowing his camera to capture that.
