Saul Leiter, offbeat chronicler of metropolitan scenes

The son of an internationally renowned Talmudic scholar, "New York School" photographer Saul Leiter was born in Pittsburgh in 1923. Intended for the Rabbinate, Leiter left theological college in 1946 and moved to New York to become a painter. Although he never ceased painting, "Leiter's camera became—like an extension of his arm and mind—an ever present tool, the offbeat chronicler of metropolitan scenes," according to Saul Leiter: Early Color essayist Martin Harrison. Featured image is "Phone Call" (1957).
