Saul Leiter will discuss his photographic work with Vince Aletti, accomplished photography critic and reviewer for the New Yorker.
Leiter began his photographic work recording moments of urban life, becoming a pioneer in the art of color photography, in the 1950's. It is the color work which coordinates lyrical abstraction with the flux of New York City, and has been widely appreciated since the publication in 2006 of the monograph Early Color.
Saul Leiter's work is in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; the Art Institute of Chicago; the Baltimore Museum of Art; the Victoria and Albert Museum; the National Gallery of Australia; the Whitney Museum of American Art; the Milwaukee Art Museum; the Yale University Art Gallery; and other prestigious public and private collections. He is represented by the Howard Greenberg Gallery.
Presented by Dear Dave, magazine as part of its series of conversations on contemporary photography.
