"Saul LEITER, now considered one of the world's greatest photographers and a pioneer of color photography, was relatively unknown until his early eighties. Only since curators and critics rediscovered him two decades ago has his work received the appreciation it deserves. In radiant color, his images reflected the rhythm of life on the streets of New York in the 1950s and '60s, while his contemporaries were still photographing in black and white. His complex and impressionistic photographs captured both moods and the famous decisive moment. At his death, he left behind a collection of more than 40,000 color slides, only a fraction of which had ever seen the light of day.
This photographic volume, 'The Unseen Saul Leiter' presents for the first time 76 rediscovered works from this extraordinary photographic treasure trove." (© Kehrer Verlag, 2022)
'The Unseen Saul Leiter' is published simultaneously in three different languages - German, English, French - by three different publishers.
