 I never had a “project.” I would go out and shoot, follow my eyes—what they noticed, I tried to capture with my camera, for others to see.” Helen Levitt, an American photographer who was particularly noted for street photography  around New York City, and who has been called “the most celebrated and least known photographer of her time”, was born on August 31, 1913.
