Saul Leiter was born and raised in Pi Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His father was a Jewish master Talmud, so Saul was studying to become a rabbi. At age 12, his mother bought him a camera. 10 years later he would leave the Theological School moving to New York to become an artist painter. Saul Leiter created paintings many of them are still for sale. Later he developed vintage image photography and other types of street photography.
Over the next 20 years, Leiter worked as a fashion photographer and the photographs were published from the biggest publications of the era: Show, Elle, British Vogue, Queen and Nova.
Leiter, however, with his great love for the painting and blood of the artist, surpassed the limits of his professional vision and created wonderful photographs of artistic value. Working in an unexpected way, a telephoto with large and colorful film fluttering, he managed to produce unique images in a vertical frame - the influence of magazines - that their color and levels resemble layers of paint on canvas.
In this way, Saul Leiter photographed with his camera the colorful snowy New York and its inhabitants. With unique finesse and aesthetics.
We are excited about the work of this great artist and we provide some of his well-known photographs below:
