Saul Leiter: Early Black and White

Saul Leiter: Early Black and White

The distinctive iconography of Saul Leiter’s early black-andwhite photographs stems from his profound response to the dynamic street life of New York City in the late 1940s and ’50s. While this technique borrowed aspects of the photo-documentary, Leiter’s imagery was more shaped by his highly individual reactions to the people and places he encountered. Like a Magic Realist with a…
