Helen Levitt, one of my favorite Photographic Flaneuse

  Helen Levitt is one of my favorites because she took photographs of a place I know very well, New York City.  In her photographs she captured the essence of what makes New York special.  It’s people of different identities, culture, and customs sharing the good, the bad, and sometimes the ugly.  But Levitt even made ugly look good in her photographs.  Take a look at the article below by Lens Culture and get a sense of what New York City was like from 1938 through the 90s through the eyes of Helen Levitt.
