di AA.VV.

  • An in-depth Look at the entire Body of Work of one of the outstanding Figures in postwar Photography

Saul Leiter (1923–2013) pioneered a painterly approach to colour photography in the 1940s and produced covers for fashion magazines such as Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar before largely withdrawing from public attention in the 1980s. 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). This collection reveals the secrets of his appeal, from his masterful colours and compositions to his lyricism and life philosophy.
