Marking the centenary of Saul Leiter’s birth, a full retrospective spanning the life and work of a genius photographer and artist.
Saul Leiter: The Centennial Retrospective is the official, comprehensive publication that celebrates the centenary of the birth of one of the 20th century’s greatest and most popular photographers. Created in collaboration with The Saul Leiter Foundation, this ambitious book, rich with previously unseen work, spans Leiter’s entire oeuvre – the abstract New York street scenes, his fashion work, his minimalist photographs of female nudes, his paintings and painted photographs – shining new light on the life of one of the most enigmatic figures in photography.
Bringing archival materials, including contact sheets and journals, into public view for the first time, and with texts by Adam Harrison Levy, Michael Greenberg and Lou Stoppard, looking in turn at Saul’s life and philosophy, the hyperlocal nature of his New York street photography and his pioneering fashion work, this book is the definitive, must-have publication for all who appreciate Saul Leiter’s genius.
