It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear friend Arthur Leipzig. Born in 1918 in Brooklyn, NY, Arthur was a documentary photographer most known for his detailed images of the streets of New York City, often capturing energetic scenes of children. Arthur started his career in photography under the direction of Sid Grossman at the Photo League. In the mid-1950s, Arthur’s work for various magazines allowed him to document places far beyond New York. Among many other celebrated exhibitions, Arthur’s work was selected by Edward Steichen for the ‘Family of Man’ exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1955.
In addition to being a talented photographer, Arthur was an inspiring gentleman, a teacher and a close friend. Our thoughts are with his wife Mimi and their family
