About All About Saul Leiter

Saul Leiter (1923–2013) pioneered a painterly approach to colour photography in the 1940s. Also, he produced covers for fashion magazines such as Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar before largely withdrawing from public attention in the 1980s. So, the publication in 2006 of his first collection, Early Color, inspired an avid ‘rediscovery’ that has since led to worldwide exhibitions and the release of a documentary, In No Great Hurry: 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter (2013). As a result, this collection reveals the secrets of his appeal, from his masterful colours and compositions to his lyricism and life philosophy. Over 200 works – including early street photographs, images for advertising, nudes and paintings – cover Leiter’s career from the 1940s onwards, accompanied by quotations from the artist that express his singular world view.

About Saul Leiter

Leiter (b. 1923) started shooting street photography in New York in the 1940s. He had no formal training in photography, but the genius of his early work was quickly acknowledged by Edward Steichen. Who included Leiter in two important MoMA shows in the 1950s. MoMA’s 1957 conference “Experimental Photography in Color” featured 20 color photographs by Leiter.
