of
photographer Helen Levitt , who marked street photography aesthetics
with her
ability to halt time and movement. A full review of her work since her

last year, through 120 images and the documentary film In the Street
Helen
Levitt is one of the great North American photographers of the second
half of
the 20th century. Her work is notable for her unique outlook and her
documentary
style, focusing on urban life, mainly in the street of New York. Her
images
capture tiny moments of daily life, apparently banal instants yet which
have
great metaphoric meaning for the social conditions of our time.
