“It is not where it is or what it is that matters, but how you see it.” - Saul Leiter
Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar’s commisioned Saul Leiter to establish some classic cover looks of warm images, voyeuristic abstract snapshots, and his signature - shot-through-the-window photos.
Leiter started shooting in 1940’s, about the time when New York’s street photography was taking off. He was about to become a Rabbi, but his love of photography took him in a different direction.
Later in life he turned into painting, often drawing similarities between his photographs and paintings.
