Leon Levinstein

Leon Levinstein at Steven Kasher Gallery. "...a survey featuring over 50 vintage black and white prints by the celebrated master of street photography. Leon Levinstein (1910–1988) is best known for his candid, unsentimental, often acerbic figure studies made in New York City neighborhoods - from Times Square, to the Lower East Side, to Coney Island. This exhibition will feature images that reflect the artist's fearless approach to the medium. Levinstein's graphic virtuosity, his raw gestures and monumental bodies, balance compassion and cruelty as he caresses and skewers his fellow citizens of the streets. This is the first survey of Levinsteins’s work since his major exhibition at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2010."
