Waterstones Says

Atmospheric and impressionistic, the images of mid-twentieth-century New York gathered together in this authoritative retrospective of Leiter's career reveal a sublimely gifted photographer way ahead of his time.

A new collection of Saul Leiter's work, much of it published here for the first time.

Saul Leiter remained relatively unsung until he was rediscovered by curators and critics in his early 80s, and his work has been drastically re-evaluated over the last two decades. Leiter's painterly images evoked the flow and rhythm of life on the mid-century streets of New York in luminous colour, at a time when his contemporaries were shooting in black and white. His complex and impressionistic photographs are as much about evoking an atmosphere as nailing the decisive moment.

In recent years, Leiter has been in the spotlight more and more with a series of exhibitions and publications. His studio in New York's East Village, where he had lived since 1952 until his death in 2013, is now the home of the Saul Leiter Foundation. The foundation has begun a full-scale survey and organization of his more than 80,000 works, with the aim of compiling the 'complete' archive. This volume contains works discovered through this process, valuable documents that reveal the secrets of Saul Leiter's creation, unpublished works, popular colour works and black-and-white works that have not been published so far, as well as works that trace the memories of those closest to him taken in private.

As Saul Leiter said, 'Photographs are often treated as capturing important moments, but they are really small fragments and memories of the world that never ends.' This is Forever Saul Leiter.
