Saul Leiter: Early Black and White

Introduction by Martin Harrison.

"Sunday Morning, The Cloisters" (c. 1947) is reproduced from 'Saul Leiter: Early Black and White.'The distinctive iconography of Saul Leiter's early black-and-white photographs stems from his profound response to the dynamic street life of New York City in the late 1940s and 50s. While this technique borrowed aspects of the photo-documentary, Leiter's imagery was more shaped by his highly individual reactions to the people and places he encountered. Like a Magic Realist with a camera, Leiter absorbed the mystery of the city and poignant human experiences. Together with Early Color, also published by Steidl, the two volumes comprising Early Black and White show the impressive range of Leiter's early photography.

Saul Leiter: Early Black and White

"Deborah" (c. 1947) is reproduced from Saul Leiter: Early Black and White, Steidl's excellent two-volume collection of the late photographer-artist's pictures from the 1940s and 50sósome of which are on view at the Photographer's Gallery in London through April 3. Max Kozloff writes, "He is able to convey the opacity and enigma of human beings, as if it were acceptable that they could be no better understood than are objects. In portraiture, especially, he evokes both these states of being and their quietude." continue to blog
