American photographer Martin Elkort is primarily known for his early black and white street photography of New York in the 1940s and 1950s post-Depression era. In his early years, Elkort joined the New York Photo League where he honed his "stealth photography" skills. Elkort captured the simple innocence and essence of real people in neighborhood settings such as Coney Island Amusement Park, the New York garment district and the Lower East Side shops, without them being aware that their picture had been snapped.

Elkort's work is in several permanent art museum collections in the United States as well as many private and corporate collections. A one-man photography exhibition featuring Elkort's early and modern black and white New York street photography, the show runs through May 31. Photos will be available for purchase.
