Photography lovers the world over are now embracing Saul Leiter, who has enjoyed a remarkable revival since fading into relative obscurity in the 1980s. This collection reveals the secrets of his appeal, from his life philosophy and lyricism to masterful colours and compositions. Some 200 works - including early street photographs, images for advertising, nudes and paintings - cover Leiter's career from the 1940s onwards, accompanied by quotations from the artist himself that express his singular world view.
