All About Saul Leiter
Publisher: Thames & Hudson Ltd
Saul Leiter (1923–2013) pioneered a painterly approach to colour photography in the 1940s, producing covers for fashion magazines such as Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar before largely withdrawing from public attention in the 1980s. This collection reveals the secrets of his visual appeal detailing his affinity with painterly colours and lyrical composition, and allows an insight into his philosophy through accompanying quotes and supportive texts. Over 200 works comprise the book – including early street photographs, images for advertising, nudes and paintings -providing a revealing insight into Leiter’s career and working process from the 1940s onwards.
