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. Text in English and German. Excellent new extensive look at the work of Saul Leiter. Recommended.
