Louis Faurer was an American fashion and street photographer. He worked with Robert Frank and Walker Evans, and had a lasting influence on the New York School of Photography. Much of his best work is of ordinary people as well as musicians. He frequently haunted the streets of New York, finding poetry amid the crackle of the city.
