Travel back in time and learn how to add depth in sketches of people and places through the use of light and contrast. From portraits to fire hydrants, street scenes to skylines, Todd Webb used his camera to capture the many contrasts of New York City in the years following World War II. Enjoy a tour of his photographs in A City Seen: Todd Webb’s Postwar New York, 1945-1960 and then choose one to sketch under the guidance of fine artist and educator Simon Levenson.
