Presentation by Steidl: Saul Leiter’s early black and white photographs

"The distinctive iconography of Saul Leiter's early black and white photographs stems from his profound response to the dynamic street life of New York City in the late 1940s and 50s.

While this technique borrowed aspects of the photodocumentary, Leiter's imagery was more shaped by his highly individual reactions to the people and places he encountered. Like a Magic Realist with a camera, Leiter absorbed the mystery of the city and poignant human experiences.

Together with Early Color, also published by Steidl, Early Black and White shows the impressive range of Leiter's early photography."

After Early Color published in 2006, here is Early Black and White finally available; available here in the French version only (the English version is long sold out despite a reprint). NB: The images presented here are however from the --identical-- English version.

This book is made of 2 volumes (I. Intérieurs and II. Extérieurs) in a soft cardboard slipcase. Co-published with "The Howard Greenberg Library".

Approx. 240 & 210 pages - Hardcover w. DJ in a soft cardboard sleeve
