The Unseen Saul Leiter

Edited with text by Margit Erb, Michael Parillo.

The Unseen Saul Leiter

A thrilling trove of newly discovered color works from the photographer celebrated for his pioneering painterly vision

Now firmly established as one of the world’s greatest photographers, Saul Leiter (1923–2013) was relatively little known until the 2006 publication of Saul Leiter: Early Color, when he was already in his eighties. Choosing to shoot in color when black and white was the norm, Leiter portrayed midcentury New York’s street life with a gorgeous painterliness that evoked the sensuality of his Abstract Expressionist contemporaries Rothko and Newman. His studio in the East Village, where he lived from 1952 until his death in 2013, is now the home of the Saul Leiter Foundation, which has commenced a full-scale survey of his more than 80,000 works.
This volume contains works discovered through this project—specifically, color photography from slides never before published or seen by the public. It is edited by Margit Erb and Michael Parillo of the Saul Leiter Foundation, and is embellished with texts that describe how Leiter assembled his slide archive and how it is being catalogued and restored.
Saul Leiter was born in Pittsburgh in 1923. He pioneered a painterly approach to color photography in the 1940s and produced covers for fashion magazines such as Vogue and Harper's Bazaar, before largely withdrawing from public attention in the 1980s. The publication of his first collection, Early Color, by Steidl in 2006, inspired an avid “rediscovery” that led to worldwide exhibitions and the release of a documentary, In No Great Hurry: 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter (2014). He died in New York in 2013.

A trove of newly discovered color photos in 'The Unseen Saul Leiter'

Featured spreads are from The Unseen Saul Leiter—new this week from D.A.P. The product of the Saul Leiter Foundation's recent full-scale survey of the 80,000+ works left behind in the photographer's East Village studio at the time of his death, this superb 160-page gem selects 76 of the most evocative, poetic images from approximately 10,000 slides that have never before been published or seen by the public. "I have spent much of my life bearing witness to Saul Leiter bearing witness," SLF founder and director Margit Erb writes. "I have looked through his camera eye. I have peered over his shoulder while he photographed and edited. And lucky for me, I have walked by his side on many journeys in the final years of his life. His images are so vividly set in my mind that I feel as if I have experienced the very moments they depict. Saul and I were close friends for over eighteen years, and his images have been orbiting around me for much longer than that. I am still endlessly surprised by his audacity, and that is precisely why I love him more than ever." continue to blog
