Paintings by New York School photographer Saul Leiter, an exhibition curated by Carrie Springer, opened at the Knoedler Project Space last night. Saul Leiter is best known for his early 1950's and 1960's color photographs. "Saul Leiter was a painter and only became a photographer when color photography could encompass the distinct color palette he wanted to include in his images. Since the 1940s, this inveterate walker has trawled the streets of New York, capturing its colors and spirit. His liking for disarray, solitude and elusiveness make him a unique artist, quite unconcerned about joining the throng." Steidl Books.

I didn't know about his work. Thanks for portraying part of it. From what I see here I do like the color tones. I specially liked the "unconcerned about joining the throng" part.

To Saul Leiter. Hello Saul...I came across your site when I was researching some photographers for an interview...we worked together in the sixties and you took a beautiful photo of me that appeared in Harper's Bazaar. Soames was my maid of honor when I married. We lost touch when I moved to Paris. I have a website MLBKI.com and I am the principal. I hope you are well and if you would like to connect my web site is MKaye@mlbki.com. Your photos are always beautiful. Best Marilyn Grano Harra Kaye

His photographs are absolutely stunning and sublime!

Steidl gets it when saying:
"disarray, solitude and elusiveness make him a unique artist, quite unconcerned about joining the throng."

Thank you for posting this!
