“People think I love children, but I don’t, it was just that children were out in the streets.” – Helen Levitt

Celebrated photographer Helen Levitt took her camera to the streets of New York City neighborhoods and captured the everyday activities of everyday people.

In celebration of a sunny spring day (finally), we encourage you to take your camera out on your street and see what moments you can capture. Then visit the Helen Levitt Photographs exhibition at the UMFA, on view through June 12, 2011.
