Im not sure how I missed this work all these years. Absolutely beautiful photos; a totally different approach to street photography than I've ever seen. Leiter extracts color, shape, dimension, energy from the prosaic scenes he photographed. The use of color was historically breakthrough as well.

i've totally fallen in love with saul leiter's work the last few weeks. his color might be a bit better than his monochrome, but all is brilliant regardless.

Finally managed to get hold of this book, it has been sold out for a while but all of a sudden had 4 extra copies available at a very reasonable price. I was impressed by Leiter's exhibition in Antwerp's Gallery 54 already and now equally by his 'paintings' in this book. The colour palette is an integral part of the images, many of which seem trivial at first until one digs deeper. Well recommended!

I have enjoy some of Saul Leiter's work and this is the second time I have taken a stab at this book.
Print quality of images were poor and images are very small. I know a lot of folks have found Saul's street work to be inspirational but for the most part I'm not in the camp. I much prefer the early colour work of Fred Herzog

Simultaneously evocative and alienating with strange intersections of reflections, fragments and objects without context - these images could be used to illustrate a Robert Chambers story. Subtly disturbing.

Haven't seen this one recently - but have coveted it since I didn't buy it years ago. I want. Looking forward to the Photofile book on him to come out soon.
