About This Item

Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2001. First Edition. First Printing.. Softcover. As New/No Dust Jacket, As Issued.. Chicago, IL: Stephen Daiter Gallery, 2001. Softcover. As New/None, As Issued. First Edition/First Printing. 22 pages. Exhibition Catalog. The first and only edition. Published in a small and limited print run as a softcover original only. There is no ISBN. The Exhibition Catalog is now scarce. An austerely elegant production by David W. Williams: Regular-sized volume format. Pictorial softcovers with titles on the cover, as issued. Photographs by Leon Levinstein. Introduction/Reminiscence by the legendary Helen Gee, one of the earliest supporters of then-nascent photographers like Levinstein as well as Robert Frank. Printed on pristine-white, thick coated stock paper in the United States to the highest standards. Without DJ, as issued. Published on the occasion of the landmark exhibition of the same name held at the Stephen Daiter Gallery Chicago from December 14, 2001 through January 12, 2002. Presents "Leon Levinstein: That's Where The Life Is". Some of his finest and most representative images. One of the best photographers of the "Chicago School", Levinstein is much better-known in Europe than in the United States. A rigorous formalist, his photographs capture American life in a way that is singularly his own: Levinstein was a Master of capturing not just the physical "moves", but the very pulse and natural rhythm of the subjects he photographed. Children and adults walk, run, play, swing, and sway - and also pause, stop, and remain still - beautifully in Levinstein's photographs. Hence the aptness of Helen Gee's essay, "That's Where The Life Is". Annie Leibovitz has expressed profound admiration for Levinstein's "moving" pictures, commenting that the technique required was something she herself did not possess. An absolute "must-have" title for Leon Levinstein collectors. <b><i> This title is a contemporary art photography classic. This is one of few copies of the Exhibition Catalog still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce copy thus. </b></i> 17 duotone plates. One of the finest photographers of the 20th century. A fine copy. .
