“I think I wander around and I see things that just speak to me, in one way or another (...)There are things that you try to say something about, or a moment you want to hold.”
—Arlene Gottfried

Today I learned that comedian/actor Gilbert Gottfried's sister, Arlene Gottfried was a renowned NYC Street photographer. She passed away in August, 2017 at the age of 66. The caption and link are to the New York Times piece chronicling her life and work. I would encourage you to have a further look at Arlene's own website for an extraordinary look through her lens.

Looking at some of van der Elsken’s work today feels uncannily like witnessing the advent of what would evolve into our indulgent selfie culture, yet the artist remains less well-known than his peers in street photography, especially outside his native country...He moved to the city in 1950, working first in a photo lab that produced prints for Magnum photographers Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson. He soon stepped into the streets himself, inspired in part by the crude urban scenes of Weegee.

Got to hang out with Gilden last week at StreetFoto. He is very vocal about why he has been taking pictures, some good insight.
