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.

Happy Birthday Robert Frank

#chrislavaud, 50mm f/1.4, Canon 5D Mark3, color, monochrome, New York, Photography, Street photography

Robert Frank is an American photographer and documentary filmmaker of Swiss origin, born November 9, 1924 in Zurich. His most notable work is the book published in 1958 titled “The Americans”. It will happen in 1947 in New York and his words will be:

“March 1947 I arrived in New York A new life begins I thought.. I’m lucky.”

You will find lots of information about this great man of street photography on the web. I respect the man and the admirable work done for many years, it is profoundly human.
Happy Birthday Sir.
