Frail and beautiful and deeply human, 'Saul Leiter: In My Room' is Back in Stock!

Saul Leiter came to New York City in 1946, on the run from rabbinical school with dreams of becoming a painter. Instead, he took up photography, having some success in fashion, but remaining relatively obscure as an artist for most of his life. The body of work collected in this volume is intensely personal, Robert Benton writes, "a very private diary in which the pages have somehow gotten out of order." All friends or lovers, "the women in these photographs are unguarded; they are naked, not nude, not clothed with the invisible garb of 'art.' They are just out there, these women, frail and beautiful and deeply human."
