Photographer Helen Levitt

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is exhibiting Helen Levitt Photographs, February 24 through June 12, 2011.
The photographs on display features her work form the late 1930s, early 40s when she emerged as New York photographer as well as her later works in 70s and 80s.
NPR refers to Levitt as a "photographer's photographer---little known by the public, but revered by fellow photographers". She photographed New Your City street scenes, mostly in Spanish Harlem, in a time before television where the streets were full of life, from kids playing in the streets to adults sitting on the stoops to avoid the inside heat.
The museum is open everyday except Mondays and Holidays.

Do you know the name of her photograph featuring the older gentleman spying the sewer's mannequin? That one made me chuckle.
