Stunning Street Photos Capture Simple Joys Of Life In New York Right After WWII

Born in 1905 and raised in Detroit, American street photographer Todd Webb led an adventurous life. After losing his money in the Stock Market Crash of 1929, he spent time fruitlessly prospecting for gold until returning to his hometown and picking up a camera in 1938. It was there he found his calling. After working as a Navy photographer during WWII, Webb moved to New York City and, in 1946, started documenting post-war New York.
