Saul Leiter (b. 1923 in Pittsburgh) has only recently received his due as one of the great pioneers of color photography. Leiter worked primarily as a fashion photographer, for magazines such as Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar. This book, published to mark the first major retrospective of Leiter’s work anywhere in the world, features for the first time, in addition to his early black and white and color images, his fashion photography, the overpainted nudes, as well as his paintings and sketchbooks.
By Brigitte Woischnik, Ingo Taubhorn, Saul Leiter, Vince Aletti, and Adam Levy. Hardcover. 296 pages.
