Description:

1st Printing. 120 pages. Published in 2004. Retrospective collection of the photographer's unpublished work. A follow-up to "Crosstown", one of the finest photography books on the art of Helen Levitt. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. A brilliant production by Helen Levitt and Marvin Hoshino: Regular-sized volume format. Blue cloth boards with white titles on spine, as issued. Photographs by Helen Levitt. Foreword by Adam Gopnik. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper by Steidl in Gottingen, Germany to the highest standards. In pictorial DJ with titles on the cover and spine, as issued. Presents Helen Levitt's "Here And There". Some of the photographer's finest unpublished work. Most of the photographs were taken in New York City, Levitt's primary subject in the course of a seven-decade photographic journey (she spent some time in Mexico City, and the pictures she took there are collected in a book named after the city). Here are 110 photographs, 90 of them never before published, including portraits of her close friends James Agee and Walker Evans (Levitt patiently accompanied Evans when he took his subway pictures, published as "Many Are Called"). "Here And There" collects Levitt's own favorite images, selected from her immense private collection, revealing her acute sense of how street life has changed cosmetically and how it has remained the same substantially. "The sheer determination of this inimitable photographer to walk the streets of her beloved city for this length of time and take pictures of what she sees reaffirms her unofficial status as New York City's visual poet laureate" (Publisher's blurb). "Helen Levitt is one of the living treasures of New York. Her vignettes of domestic, daily city life, taken on the Lower East Side and in Harlem, are a form of poetry that evokes the fortitude and forbearance of New Yorkers past and present" (The New York Times Book Review). "Levitt's photographs have the quality of frozen street-corner conversation: She went out, saw something wonderful, came home to tell you all about it, and then, frustrated, said, ‘You had to be there' , and you realize, looking at the picture, that you were" (Adam Gopnik). Helen Levitt died on March 29, 2009 at the age of 95, "all-seeing" to the end, and will be sorely missed. An absolute "must-have" title for Helen Levitt collectors. This title is a photography classic. This is one of few copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A rare copy thus. 110 tritone plates. Helen Levitt's "A Way of Seeing" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER HELEN LEVITT TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 1576871657. Bookseller Inventory # 12798

This title is a photography classic. As far as we know, this is the only such signed copy of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. Signed copies of her books are scarce, and will increase in value. A rare signed copy thus. 110 tritone plates. Helen Levitt's "A Way of Seeing" was selected as one of the greatest photography books in "The Photobook". One of the greatest photographers of the 20th century. A fine collectible copy.
