Saul Leiter has only in recent years been acknowledged as one of the great pioneers of colour photography. Like Robert Frank of Helen Levitt, he found his motifs on the streets of New York, but at the same time was visibly interested in abstraction. This long-awaited new edition of the book, first published to mark the major retrospective of Leiter's work at Haus der Photographie, Deichtorhallen Hamburg in 2012, features, in addition to his early black and white and colour images, his fashion photography, the overpainted nudes, as well as his paintings and sketchbooks.
