Summary

"Slide Show, the third powerHouse Books release by legendary New York City street photographer Helen Levitt, is the first monograph to showcase only color photographs--many of which have never been published, or event printed, before! In 1959, and again in 1960, Helen Levitt received grants from the Guggenheim Foundation to photograph in color on the streets of New York where she had photographed two decades earlier in black-and-white. The best of these pioneering color pictures were stolen from her apartment in 1970 and she had to start over again. In 1974 the new work was shown as a continuous slide projection at New York's Museum of Modern Art--an early example of photography presented by a museum as a slide show and one of the first exhibitions of serious color photography anywhere. Slide Show: The Color Photographs of Helen Levitt, Levitt's newest book, presents more than 100 pictures, including eight surviving images from the 1959-60 series. More than half of the pictures have never been exhibited or published before.
