My friend Sophie is a great culture vulture, and thanks to her I've managed to see quite a few exhibitions in Madrid's annual photography season Photoespaña. I wanted to mention one of the shows here as I liked it so much - Helen Levitt's City Lyrics - a collection of her photos of New York from 1936-1993 with a special focus on the lives of ordinary people, in particular children, on the streets of the Big Apple. Moving and lovely stuff. Can be seen at the Museo Colecciones ICO (Near the Thyssen museum) until the end of August.
