Street Seen

Six post war photographers, including Lisette Model, Louis Faurer, Ted Croner, Saul Leiter, William Klein and Robert Frank, as well as their predecessors and contemporaries, are featured in this excellent book, Street Seen: The Psychological Gesture in American Photography, 1940-1959, published by Prestel.

Most of the photographers were based in New York, and this book, among other things, is an atmospheric look back at the bustling, seedy and mysterious New York City streets during and immediately following WWII. It’s a great escape to imagine what it must have been like living in the city during that time.
