introductory essay by james agee, this is a "definitive new edition" of the 1965 book published in 1981 "with a corrected text and 24 additional photographs". gorgeous. street life in new york. a bit of the feel of walker evans and even of art shay's chicago photography .. what distinguishes levitt for me is her focus on the women and children .. though there are men too. its choice of shot and moment of the day. urban life captured in words and pictures.
