Arthur Leipzig (born Isidore Leipzig)        USA        1928-2014

 

documentary photographer

known for his crisp, detailed,

emotionally provocative images,

particularly those of children

at play on the streets and piers

of mid-20th-century

New York City

 

(...)

 

Mr. Leipzig

(pronounced LIPE-zig)

was one of the last

surviving members

of a generation

of socially minded

photographers

— others included

Helen Levitt,

Roy DeCarava,

Jerome Liebling

and Gordon Parks —

who took to the streets

to record life

as they encountered it.
