Delivery policy (edit with Customer reassurance module)
Lírica urbana (Urban Lyrics) tours the work of one of the most well-known American woman photographers, Helen Levitt (New York, 1913-2009). She became famous for her street photographs, which portrayed everyday life in New York and that great city´s private side.
The book shows a black-and-white Manhattan and another facet of the artist, the colour slides she took during the last stage of her career. Finally, it also offers her impressions of a trip to Mexico in 1941 in an almost unknown documentary series. The volume is designed as a new interpretation of her essential work, A Way of Seeing, from the viewpoints expressed in texts by Alan Trachtenberg, Jean-François Chevrier and Jorge Ribalta.
Throughout her life, Helen Levitt was concerned with human interaction and for decades she pursued the enigmas enclosed in everything urban.
