Louis Faurer

Louis Faurer was a master of candid street photography. He was best known for his photographs of the streets of New York and Philadelphia, portraying both the energy and the loneliness of urban life in big cities. He was famous for being a perfectionist with both his darkroom printing and his work in the field. For more than twenty years, he photographed commercially for leading magazines such Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue, Look, and Life. His work was included in the exhibitions In and Out of Focus (1948) and The Family of Man (1955) at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. His work has also been exhibited nationally and abroad, including shows at the Art Institute of Chicago, Philadelphia Museum of Art, and many others. He was the recipient of numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1979 and three National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships in 1978, 1981, and 1982.  Mr. Faurer was born in Philadelphia in 1916, where he later attended Philadelphia’s School of Commercial Art and Lettering from 1937 to 1940.  He died on March 2, 2001, in Manhattan.
