I NEVER MET HELEN LEVITT, BUT I HAVE BEEN ON THE SAME PAGE AS HER, BOTH  PHILOSOPHICALLY AND IN BOOKS.

SHE KNEW THAT THE RICH STREETS OF NEW YORK WOULD KEEP HER BUSY FOR AS LONG AS SHE KEPT PHOTOGRAPHING, AND SHE KEPT PHOTOGRAPHING FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

SHE’S GONE, BUT SHE IS NOT GONE…THE LEGACY OF AN ARTIST.
