More photos from the big city

Together with "Paths Through the Global City," the Cantor Arts Center is also hosting the exhibition "In a New York Minute: Photographs by Helen Levitt." The show features 55 color and black-and-white images by Levitt (1913-2009), as well as her film "In the Street."

"These images by Levitt are icons of the spontaneity and eccentricity of the New York City streets. Rubinfien's work reveals the poetry of urban life, especially the street," Hilarie Faberman said in a press release. She's curator of modern and contemporary art at the museum.

"Although the two exhibitions are separate and distinct, commonality resides in the photographer's attraction to the urban scene and in the spontaneity of their work," Faberman added. "Rubinfien's and Levitt's works, presented in tandem, underscore changes in urban life and documentary photography over the last 60 years."
