Item Description...
This is a reprint of the immensely successful "Early Color" (2008), which presented Saul Leiter's remarkable body of color work to the public for the first time in book form. Although Edward Steichen had exhibited some of Leiter's color photography at The Museum of Modern Art in 1953, it remained virtually unknown to the world thereafter. Leiter moved to New York in 1946 to become a painter, but through his friendship with Richard Pousette-Dart he quickly recognized the creative potential of photography. Leiter continued to paint, exhibiting with Philip Guston and Willem de Kooning, but the camera remained his ever-present means of recording life in the metropolis. None of Leiter's contemporaries, with the partial exception of Helen Levitt, assembled a comparable body of work: subtle, often abstract compositions of lyrical, eloquent color.

More About Saul Leiter & Martin Harrison

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Saul Leiter was born in Pittsburgh in 1923, the son of a rabbi. His work was shown at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1947 and at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1953. Then--after a long gap comprising most of the 1950s through the 1980s--it began to appear in solo shows at major venues again, first at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London (1991), then the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. (2006) and coming soon, the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris (2008). During this time Leiter's work also traveled to Chicago, Santa Barbara and Antwerp, and was assembled into several thematic solo shows at the Howard Geeenberg Gallery in New York, including "Saul Leiter: Early Color", with its eponymous monograph. Leiter, who had meant to be a painter, and who has continued to paint on his own throughout his photography career, lives and works in New York. His work will be the subject of a major 2008 exhibition at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris.

Saul Leiter was born in 1923 and died in 2013.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Excellent Monograph  Jun 2, 2007
This monograph was suggested by a friend of mine who is a very talented designer and photographer -- he thought it would be a good touchstone for my work. The book is a smallish format (8 x 8 inches) with color plates, one per page of about 100 images. It was published in conjunction with a show at New York's Howard Greenberg Gallery.

Leiter was best known as a painter who exhibited alongside Philip Guston and Willem de Kooning in the 1950's, but his real talent may have been as a photographer. Focusing on urban street scenes in New York, Leiter creates a highly layered visual sensibility -- not a translation of abstract expresionism to photography, but a style uniquely his own that defines the photographic medium in a new way. Many of the images look forward to the digital montage styles that are gaining currency today, but with a lyrical beauty and rhythm that speak to the humanity and drama of the street. It is unfortunate it took the world 40 years to appreciate this visual genius and rediscover what he saw.

A must have photobook.
A Master of Color Photography  Aug 25, 2006
Long overdue, this give this long over-looked artist a place to shine. The color reproductions are marvelous and have a woderfule bygone era quality about them.
