Evaluation No review available

Saul Leiter has only in recent years been acknowledged as one of the great pioneers of colour photography. Like Robert Frank of Helen Levitt, he found his motifs on the streets of New York, but at the same time was visibly interested in abstraction. This collection, published to mark the first major retrospective of Leiter's work, features for the first time, in addition to his early black and white and colour images, his fashion photography, the overpainted nudes, as well as his paintings and sketchbooks.

About the author

Saul Leiter was born in Pittsburgh in 1923, the son of a rabbi. His work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and in other public and private collections.
