Bill Witt grew up during the depression, and was inspired by the great documentary photographers of the F.S.A. His first photographic work was photographing poverty in rural India while stationed there during WWII. He continued his documentary photography in NYC as a member of the Photo League, but also studied painting with Hans Hofmann in Provincetown, and returned to painting and art photography in the 1970’s. This and the other Witt photographs we have for sale are vintage prints from his Photo League period.
10 x 9 5/8- inch gelatin silver print, signed and dated 1951 on recto. Credit stamp on verso, with the following in pencil. "Shoe Shine Stand with Posters/ Bill Witt 1951/ Print about 1950's/ C. 1978 Bill Witt."
An interesting juxtaposition of the face in the poster with the black shoe shine man.
