Walter Rosenblum: In Search of Pitt Street

Noted New York photographer Walter Rosenblum has enjoyed a long and fascinating career: the son of a poor fruit peddler on the Lower East Side, he studied under Paul Strand at the Photo League, witnessed the Normandy invasion and the liberation of Dachau as an army cameraman, and developed a documentary style that was warm but mostly free of sentimentality. In recounting his life story, daughter Nina Rosenblum allows Walter to rattle on like Polonius, sharing his sage observations, and by her estimate he seems never to have made a wrong move, said a harsh word, or taken a photo that wasn't museum quality. When she sticks to the facts, this 1999 film provides a graceful portrait. 60 min.
