Helen Levitt. published by Thames and Hudson
Introduction by Jean - François Chevrier
Brooklyn born Helen Levitt ( 1913 - 2009) was an assistant to Walker Evans and a friend of Henri Cartier Bresson, but forged her own path with fierce independence and endless curiosity about the world around her. She is best known for her street photography, capturing children at play on the streets of Depression era New York and chalk drawings on walls, but she also cast her eye upon the adult world , seeking out moments of movement, transience and theatricality.
