Image description:

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1923, Saul Leiter is the son of an internationally renowned rabbi. Intended to follow in his father's footsteps alongside his two brothers, he attended the Cleveland School of Theology.
He very early showed his desire to enter the arts world, but each time encountered his father's reluctance. This father-son opposition marked Leiter's entire career as a photographer, forcing him to learn the subtleties of art on his own. This position isolates him from his family for a long time at 23 years old.

The photographer, a discreet and singular character, refuses any analysis or explanation of his work. For him the photography is intuitive, he observed something interesting and he pressed the shutter release button.
it will be necessary to wait until the 1990s and more than fifty years of career to discover all the richness of his work. His signature shots: photos taken in the daily life of New Yorkers, without however trying to mark the fact that these photos belong to the city. His style is mainly characterized by games with fogging or focusing, offering his first letters of nobility to color photography. Having become an international icon in his field, he will be exhibited in the most prestigious photographic galleries until his death on November 26, 2013.

Saul Leiter is often presented as one of the main actors in the development of colour photography. It is still on display in many renowned private collections today, for the quality of its work.
