Saul Leiter RIP

Posted by

Celebrated photographer Saul Leiter has died aged 89. Leiter eluded mainstream fame for most of his life, but his body of work, particularly his experiments in abstract street color studies in the middle years of the 20th Century are a continuing inspiration to new generations of photographers. A shy figure, Leiter is the subject of a new film, ‘In No Great Hurry’ about his life and work which was recently released.
