Summary

"hellip;Helen Levitt is one of the living treasures of New York, widely admired for her devotion to candid street photography in a style influenced by Henri Cartier-Bresson and Walker Evanshellip;[Her] vignettes of domestic, daily city life, taken on the Lower East Side and in Harlem, are a form of poetry that evokes the fortitude and forbearance of New Yorkers past and present." -Andy Grundberg,The New York Times Book Review Selected as the best photography book of 2001 byThe New York TimesBook Review,The Village Voice, andPhoto-Eye, among others, Helen Levittrs"s magnum opusCrosstown(powerHouse Books 2001) all but sold out of its one and only, six-thousand-copy print run. Here and Thereis Levittrs"s new collection of personally-selected images a charming monograph featuring over ninety never-before-published photographs, including portraits of her friends James Agee and Walker Evans. The recently discovered photographs featured inHere and Thererepresent Levittrs"s own favorite images selected from her immense private collection. Shot over seven decades,Here and Therereveals Levittrs"s acute sense of how cosmetically street life has changed-and how substantially it has remained the same. The sheer determination of this inimitable photographer to walk the streets of her beloved city for this length of time and take pictures of what she saw, reaffirms her unofficial status as New York Cityrs"s visual poet laureate. "[Levittrs"s photographs] have the quality of frozen street-corner conversation: she went out, saw something wonderful, came home to tell you all about it, and then, frustrated, said, ls"You had to be there,rs" and you realize, looking at the picture, that you were." -Adam Gopnik,The New Yorker
