Saul Leiter Photofile

Saul Leiter was one of those photographers who sought neither fame nor commercial success, despite his talent for imagemaking.

Born in Pittsburgh, he spent his entire adult life in New York City's East Village, in an intensely creative environment where ideas from Europe and America came together and intermingled. There he encountered Rothko and the Abstract Expressionists, and discovered street photography and the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson. His mastery of colour is displayed in unconventional cityscapes in which reflections, transparency, complex framing and mirroring effects are married to a very personal printing style, creating a unique kind of urban view.

About the series: The classic Photofile series brings together the best work of the world's greatest photographers in an attractive format and at a reasonable price. Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains some sixty full-page photographs in duotone and/or color, plus an introduction and a bibliography. Now back in print, the series was awarded the first annual prize for distinguished photographic books by the International Center of Photography.
