Helen Levitt

I was saddened to hear that Helen Levitt the photographer has recently passed away. I've mentioned her before on the 'mystuff page' of my website as I am a big fan. It may seem trite to say this but she really was able to tell a story in a photo. I always felt that she was coming from the same place as her subjects, there's no judgement, polite barrier or commentary (well, that's sort of impossible but you know what I mean). She was a rare talent and will be greatly missed. Love tt.
