In the May show “Pictures by Women: A History of Modern Photography,” MoMA will be showing recently acquired (and little seen) color photography by Helen Levitt, the New York street photographer known for her black-and-white work.
Levitt’s most famous pictures were often of children, but even with that subjest matter, she kept her gaze resolutely unsentimental–a stance the color work maintains. Levitt loves New York without romanticizing it.
MoMA has posted a gallery on their blog. See more here.
