Helen Levitt / Les Rencontres d’Arles
Jul 1 – Sep 22, 2019
Les Rencontres d’Arles
Arles, France

Funny, incongruous, vibrant and resolutely human, these scenes out on the streets of New York, put next to one another make up Helen Levitt’s pictorial oeuvre: a genuine witnessing of the urban effervescence.

Out on the streets of New York, Helen Levitt caught the reckless kids in black and white, their drawings on walls and the women who watched them out of windows. Funny, incongruous, vibrant and resolutely human, these scenes, put next to one another make up her pictorial oeuvre: a genuine witnessing of the urban effervescence before people had television sets. It has been ten years now since she passed away, and Les Rencontres d’Arles is looking back through 130 original clichés, at her career and the evolution of this incredible artist, who went from photographing the streets to experimenting with color and filmmaking.
