Arthur Leipzig, who was born in New York, shot thousands of rolls of film over five decades, producing carefully constructed and socially engaged photographs that take a sincere look at street life. He contributed to the most renowned periodicals of his time. Among the most memorable are photo essays on children’s street games, city workers atop the Brooklyn Bridge, Coney Island, and V-Day. He candidly captured some of New York’s favourite personalities, while assignments also took him to locations like Peru, Sudan and the Sahara. Acclaimed as a sensitive and impassioned documentary photographer, Leipzig always directed his camera toward the human condition.
