Leon Levenstein

Not quite the household name when it comes to photography, the majority of Leon Levenstein's work pointedly shows the direction where more renowned names (Winogrand, Arbus, Cohen, Gilden, etc) would further refine and improve. Then there are the iconic images (hard to find online) as above that are still striking and imaginative to this very day.

But perhaps the most unique thing about this photographer- his apparent aversion to the limelight. How many of those walking about today in this age forever awash in images, both good and bad...
