Saul Leiter was a painter and only became a photographer when colour photography could encompass the distinct colour palette he wanted to include in his images. Since the 1940s, this inveterate walker has trawled the streets of New York, capturing its colours and spirit. His liking for disarray, solitude and elusiveness make him a unique artist, quite unconcerned about joining the throng.This book contains several previously unpublished colour pictures and his early black and white pictures.
