Guess the photographer


Guess the photographer...

The answer is Esther Bubley - one of a number of pretty damn good photographers from the heyday of photojournalism. She certainly had an eye for colour from the little bit that's on her site (or maybe it's just that with Kodachrome II or whatever version it was - give it any tiny bit of red and it just zings + the slides still usually look as good today as they did 60 years ago)

i don't know the picture. it definitely has a saul leiter air. which means nothing: it could have other "airs" as well...

I have never seen this picture before, but I would
guess this was a picture by Helen Lewitt.

It is easier to guess the period, late forties early
fifties. This could be a Harry Callahan and somtimes Henry Cartier Bresson and Walker Evans
dropped in a Kodachrome to try color. Who knows.
