About the Author

Saul Leiter was born in 1923 in Pittsburgh. He pioneered a painterly approach to colour photography in the 1940s and produced covers for fashion magazines such as Esquire and Harper's Bazaar before largely withdrawing from public attention in the 1980s. The publication in 2006 of his first collection, Early Color, inspired an avid 'rediscovery' that has since led to worldwide exhibitions and the release of a documentary, In No Great Hurry: 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter (2013). He died in New York in 2013. Margit Erb is the founder and director of the Saul Leiter Foundation, which is dedicated to preserving Leiter's art and legacy. Pauline Vermare is Cultural Director at Magnum Photos. Motoyuki Shibata is a scholar and translator of American literature.


'A unique insight into the mind of the artist' - Aesthetica
'Leiter's painterly photographs are proof that colour doesn't need to shout. His smeary, atmospheric images show that photographs can whisper' - The Herald
