Arthur Leipzig (born Isidore Leipzig) USA 1928-2014
known for his crisp, detailed,
emotionally provocative images,
particularly those of children
at play on the streets and piers
New York City
was one of the last
of a generation
of socially minded
— others included
and Gordon Parks —
who took to the streets
to record life
as they encountered it.
