Leon Levinstein "Street Scene: Woman with white purse, New York City"

I was shown this photographer's work by fellow classmate Mary Catando! He and Klein have similar styles but Levinstein feels more modern and are mostly portraits of new yorkers. Levinstein shows rich, dark tones in these photos from his " Street Scene" series. In this photo he took it candidly and from an odd perspective. He must of had the camera to his stomach so that the subject doesnt know he's photographing them. The woman's body position is odd and the man's arm draws my eye to the right of photo. I've taken photos of similar perspective in the city and i'm glad i was shown this photographer.
