Saul Leiter photography
It is my youngest daughter who is a keen student of Interior Design that introduced me to the work of Saul Leiter.
Leiter (1923-2013) started his career as a painter at the age of 23, in New York. His photographs reflect this taste of the fluidity of color as well as the intensity of the pigment which make you doubt whether you are looking at a painting or a photograph.
He first used a 35 mm Leica. He photographed everyday life, he played with raindrops and immortalised some beautiful fashion and women in the pages of Elle, British Vogue, Esquire and Harper's Bazaar.
His pictures are so modern and "now" that I firmly believe that many a tumblr photogrpaher took after him. Which is of course a good base to build on.
