Helen Levitt, New York, 1940 

“If it were easy to talk about, I’d be a writer. Since I’m inarticulate,
I express myself with images.”

"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

Helen Levitt was an American photographer. She was particularly noted for "street photography"
