Three years already! Tribute to Saul Leiter

Saul Leiter was a contemporary American photographer, he left us on November 26, 2013 in New York. He had been one of the pioneers of color photography while at the time only black and white was worthy of interest. He was widely known for his work as a street photographer but he was nevertheless extremely famous for his fashion photos. In the street, he was always looking for moments and fleeting scenes while looking for original frames. Saul Leiter also liked the blur, the mist and above all the anonymity of the passers-by. There are several works dedicated to this great photographer including “Early Color” that I particularly recommend. I consider him personally as one of the greatest street photographers of the 20th century.
