Brigitte Woischnik on Saul Leiter: Retrospective

It’s only recently that Saul Leiter (1923-2013) has received due recognition for his pioneering role in the emergence of colour photography. He moved to New York intent on becoming a painter, yet ended up working for magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and British Vogue and became known for his impressionistic colour street scenes.
Co-Curator Brigitte Woischnik discusses his work and legacy, featured in the exhibition Saul Leiter: Retrospective at The Photographers’ Gallery from 22 January until 3 April 2016.
