Saul Leiter photographed and painted almost every day for over sixty years, amassing an enormous archive, most of which remained unseen during his lifetime. Finding inspiration just a few blocks from his flat in Lower Manhattan, he was a master at discovering beauty in the most ordinary places. Celebrated today for his evocative colour photographs of the New York of the 1950s and 1960s, unknown at the time, Leiter also enjoyed success as a fashion photographer for Harper’s Bazaar. Meanwhile, he photographed black-and-white street scenes on his daily walks, and nudes and intimate portraits at home, while continuing his pictorial explorations with abstract watercolours, quirky sketchbooks and painted photographs.

Created in collaboration with the Saul Leiter Foundation, this definitive monograph brings together these diverse but interconnected bodies of work – including many previously unpublished works – to reveal the complete artist for the first time.
