Street photographer Leon Levinstein (American, 1910-1988) came to New York in the 1940s and studied under Harper’s Bazaar artistic director Alexey Brodovich and Photo League founder Sid Grossman. By 1950, he had begun photographing people on the street, a practice he would continue for the rest of his life.
