Saul Leiter: In My Room


Product Description
Product Details


Here, in an intimate monograph, Leiter's work is presented for the first time, allowing us a glimpse into his private world...He resisted explaining or analyzing his work, allowing the photographs to speak for themselves. This makes the images something of a Rorschach Test, inviting us to look inside and reflect upon what his work triggers in us.--Sara Rosen "Feature Shoot "
As New York's famous mid-century photographers set out to capture the city in shades of black and gray, Saul Leiter rendered its unassuming details in expressive color. Using temperamental expired film, Leiter saw the streets in sharp punches of red and vast seas of shadow. "Seeing is a neglected enterprise," Leiter once said. A painter as well, he captured the impression of a place--figures, snow, fog, concrete, and lamplight--daubed, like brushstrokes.--Jacqui Palumbo "Artsy "
The book is an homage and a love letter.--Vince Aletti "Photograph "
The images are lovingly and expertly reproduced in a broad dynamic range from delicate gray tones to rich blacks, and is beautifully printed on heavy matte paper by master printer Steidl.--Richard Rivera "New York Journal of Books "
These quiet, intimate black-and-white photographs, which Leiter developed himself in his darkroom, were kept under lock and key during his lifetime; only a few friends knew them. His female models were friends or lovers whom the artist portrayed in the everyday setting of his New York apartment; they were not professional nude models. As if in an act of conspiracy, they joined the photographer in playful collaboration to challenge the dualistic principle of voyeurism and exhibitionism.--Eye of Photography
The great photographer captured thousands of unguarded moments in his New York studio, finding beauty in surprising places.--Guardian
It is the clear sense of collaboration between subject and artist that makes these images so striking.--Daisy Woodward "AnOther Magazine "
