The ALBERTINA is featuring the American photographer Helen Levitt (1913–2009) in a retrospective that brings together around 130 of her iconic works. These range from her early, surrealism-influenced photographs to her 1941 photos from Mexico, the clandestinely shot portraits of New York subway passengers and her revolutionary early color photographs. Helen Levitt numbers among the foremost exponents of street photography. It was in the 1930s that this passionate observer and chronicler of New York street life first began taking pictures of the inhabitants of poorer neighborhoods such as the Lower East Side, the Bronx, and Harlem. Levitt’s unsentimental pictorial language gives rise to a humorous and theatrical pageant situated beyond any moral or social documentary clichés. In 1974, Levitt became the first color photographer to be given an exhibition by New York’s Museum of Modern Art. 12.10.2018 – 27.10.2019.
