The show presented work by Lee Friedlander, Diane Arbus, Roy DeCarava, Robert Frank, Helen Levitt, Walker Evans, Doris Ulmann, Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, and others. Illustrated with black-and-white plates; with an introduction by curator Susan Kismaric, and index. Owner signature to front endpaper. Light soiling and toning to unclipped dust jacket. Very good.
