Helen Levitt is one of the most important and influential figures in contemporary photography. For over 60 years her quiet, poetic photographs made on the streets of New York City have inspired and amazed generations of photographers, students, collectors, curators, and lovers of art in general. Now in her 96th year, Helen Levitt, is considered one of the most influential photographers of this century and her work is widely studied in fine arts programs around the world and highly coveted by collectors and museums alike. Her work has been featured most recently at the Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paris; the Sprengel Museum, Hannover, Germany, earning her the Spectrum International Photography Prize; and FOAM Museum Amsterdam, with a major retrospective opening in October 2008.
