Saul Leiter (b. 1923) is one of those photographers who seek neither fame nor commercial success, despite their talent for imagemaking.  Born in Pittsburgh, he spent the 1940s and 1950s in New York, in an intensely creative environment where ideas from Europe and America came together and intermingled.  There he encountered Rothko and the Abstract Expressionists, and discovered street photography and the work of Cartier-Bresson.  His mastery of color is displayed in unconventional cityscapes in which reflections, transparency, complex framing and mirroring effects are married to a very personal printing style, creating a unique urban view. 
SAUL LEITER (b. 1923) was an American photographer and painter.MAX KOZLOFF is a prolific writer and art critic. He is the author of several books, including Lone Visions, Crowded Frames: Essays on Photography.
