Saul Leiter: 1950

photofile saul leiter

Each one contains some sixty full-page reproductions, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. Handsome and collectible, these books are produced to the highest standards. And what would you photograph? In interviews Leiter shares that he does gain a great deal of inspiration from painters — and I think it shows very clearly through his work. And as you photograph, one of the benefits is that the world becomes a much richer, juicier, visual place. Instead, for him the camera provided an alternative way of seeing, of framing events and interpreting reality. Even if you live in a suburb, taking photos of the banality of suburban living is fascinating.

What sets this image apart from its forbears is that Leiter truly captures what that kiss in a busy crowd would feel like, especially in the modern age. His sense of color and densely compressed urban life represents a truly unique vision of those times. The Countess has stayed in her room all day worried what she has done, what will happen now she has exposed her husband, the Count of taking part in a new government and up and coming regime. Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards. I can guarantee you that this will help improve your photographic vision.

With distinctive imagery suffused with painterly qualities, he is often grouped with other photographers of. The late art of Picasso is no good but then a revision takes place and then it becomes very good as the art records indicate. There he encountered Rothko and the Abstract Expressionists, and discovered street photography and the work of Cartier-Bresson. SteveDuteuil has uploaded 357 photos to Flickr.

6 Lessons Saul Leiter Taught Me: Street Photography (+GIVEAWAY)

The lyricism and intensity of his vision come into fullest play in his eloquent handling of color: to the rapid recording of the spontaneous unfolding of life on the street, Leiter adds an unconventional sense of form and a brilliantly improvisational, and frequently almost abstract, use of found colors and tones. Rather, be humble in your pursuits— collaborate with other street photographers, and enjoy the experience of shooting on the streets. To Leiter, beauty was the only thing worth pursuing and he spent his entire life in that pursuit. However the most important aspect we need to nurture and develop is our eyes. One has to be ambitious. Each volume contains reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards.

Visit your local library and borrow as many books on art history that you can. They focus on shapes, lights, shadows, abstractions, and the colors of everyday life. Would you appreciate seeing the details of your world and life differently? Much of his street photography is shot with a relatively long lens— which compresses his scenes.

Instead of focusing in on Carol Brown herself, he shifts the focus to a wire bowl positioned directly in front of her. There he encountered Rothko and the Abstract Expressionists, and discovered street photography and the work of Cartier-Bresson. His photos are colorful, bright, and joyful. So if you are into compression and geometric shapes Henri Cartier-Bresson used a 50mm most of his entire life try using a longer lens. Realize how blessed we are with vision and being able to see the world in the richness that we do. The soft pastels in his color photography as well as sometimes the intensity highlights the beauty of everyday life.

7 Lessons Saul Leiter Has Taught Me About Street Photography

Q: Is there a philosophy or outlook that you have tried to communicate in your work? When I left Marseille back to America, he gave me a beautiful Saul Leiter book. Born in Pittsburgh, he spent the 1940s and 1950s in New York, in an intensely creative environment where ideas from Europe and America came together and intermingled. There he encountered Rothko and the Abstract Expressionists, and discovered street photography and the work of Cartier-Bresson. When I flipped through the pages, I was overwhelmed by the beautiful colors, reflections, and abstractions of Leiter. He also told funny stories about Robert Frank and his friend Diane Arbus. Takeaway point: I think as street photographers it is easy to be lured into taking dark, gritty, and gloomy photos. Each book brings together the best work of the world's greatest photographers in an attractive format and at an easily affordable price.

Handsome and collectible, the books are produced to the highest standards. Each volume contains reproductions printed in superb duotone, together with a critical introduction and a full bibliography. I was always very happy that way. Instead of seeking out the anxiety and pain that is so often the subject of street photographers, Leiter chose to seek out the moments of quiet beauty that exist within urban chaos.
