Helen Levitt – Les Recontres d’Arles 2019

The solo exhibition Helen Levitt: Observing New York Streets is part of this year’s photography festival Les Recontres de la Photographie d’Arles. The exhibition is a cooperation with Albertina, Vienna and was curated by Walter Moser. The show is on view at Espace Van Gogh through 22 September 2019.

The renowned American photographer Helen Levitt (1913-2009) began photographing unsentimental, yet poetic street scenes in her native city of New York in the late 1930s. Her photographs capture the life of the urban setting and especially of the children playing in the streets.
