A retrospective exhibition in Paris, and two recent books, confirm that Helen Levitt is one of the most important street photographers of the 20th century. Her range is remarkable: From iconic black-and-white images from the 30s and 40s, to pioneering color-saturated work that captures the theater of the streets in the 70s and 80s. And listen to an NPR audio interview with Levitt from 2002.
