In the Street.

Photographs by Helen Levitt. Essay by Robert Coles.
Duke University Press, Durham, NC, 1987. 112 pp., 114 duotone photographs.

The second major book on the work of distinguished documentary photographer and filmmaker Helen Levitt reflects her fascination as a young woman in the forties with the chalk drawings and writings sketched by children on New York's sidewalks. Now published for the first time, these images of the street drawings and their artists provide a multi-layered translation of America in the forties as seen through the art of the decade's children and the visual choices of an outstanding photographer: "skyscrapers and farms, World War II battleships and speeding trains, movie star pinups and gangsters, cowboys and Indians, and lovers. She records scribbled messages of great pathos and humor--a vanished urban America and a vanished world of children."--the publisher.
