Louis Faurer

Anne Wilkes Tucker

The first major study of the work of Louis Faurer, known for his raw, melancholy and psychologically charged photographs of life on the street, and in particular for his evocative shots of Times Square in the 1940s and 1950s.


Memorably evokes New York street life of the 1940s and 1950s

Rarely seen photographs from Harper's BazaarVogue and Flair

Faurer was a major influence on Robert Frank, Diane Arbus and the so-called New York school of photography

Published in association with The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
