This collaboration was born in 1945 when Levitt and Agee worked together on In the Street, a documentary film shot in Harlem. The photographs were taken on the streets of Harlem and the Lower East Side in the late 1930s and 1940s. The project remained unpublished until the present edition. Agee writes ‘Levitt’s photographs seem to me as beautiful, perceptive, satisfying, and enduring as any lyrical work that I know… an uninsistent but irrefutable manifesto of a way of seeing, and, in a gentle and wholly unpretentious way, a major poetic work.’\n\nRoth, A., The Book of 101 Books, pp.178-9; Parr, M. and Badger, G., The Photobook: A History Vol.I, pp.252-3; Roth, A. et al.
