photogs: james agee on helen levitt

from the always mindblowing photography blog "american suburb x," a reprinting of james agee's beautiful intro to a book of levitt's kickass nyc photos:

"I am nevertheless convinced that the photographs cannot be fully
enjoyed, or adequately discussed, on a purely naturalistic or rational
basis. Many of them prove, rather, that the actual world constantly
brings to the surface its own signals, and mysteries."
