Saul Leiter: 1923-2013

Wednesday 27 November 2013

I can’t claim to have personally known Saul Leiter who has just passed away in New York but I have a strong sense that apart from being so originally gifted as a photographer; he was also modest, free of pretension, wise, generous and perhaps above all else, he was authentic. Authenticity is a rare quality and probably a fading one in the world of photography.

Saul Leiter pursued his photography – and his painting – because that was his calling irrespective of whether it brought him fame. He seemed refreshingly ambivalent about fame; in fact he stated a desire to be ignored. Did he mean it? Yes, he probably did but he enjoyed the waves of recognition that washed over him in his life especially in his latter years when he was almost forgotten.

Rightly regarded as a pioneer in color photography in the 1950s and beyond because he seemed so naturally to understand that genre’s particular palette. His use of color was so subtle but always a celebration. Consider just one picture; a snow laden street with half of a figure at the edge of the frame with a red umbrella. He loved umbrellas and reflections and taking photographs through rain stained misted windows. He loved woman too, his fashion photography is testimony to that. He will be remembered by many as a fine street photographer.

Leiter was recently generous enough to allow some of his work to be featured on in-public, which was something that touched us all. In an accompanying interview he stated. “I am 89 and I know what I’m talking about – sometimes” He enjoyed being self-mocking but he knew more than most, he was an inspiration.

Of his entry Candid portrait of a woman on a street corner The judge, Helen Ennis, Head at the School of Art, Australian National University said it is “a very unusual work, the subject isn’t immediately visible and so our notions of portraiture are challenged. The viewer is invited to actively work with the image in order for the face of this unknown woman to become apparent”.

Award Co-ordinator Anouk Beck said “Trent Parke was elated at the news and to receive an award for this work which marks a new direction for him and his first foray into portraiture”.

Saul Leiter joins In-Public

Monday 06 May 2013

Saul Leiter

Everyone at In-public is excited to welcome Saul Leiter to our slowly growing ‘Masters’ section. Quite simply the colour street photographs of Saul Leiter are both humbling and inspiring to all of us. Saul was an early practitioner of colour photography, he has a unique vision and his photographs have soul.

We would like to thank Margit Erb for her enthusiasm in making this portfolio possible. Margit works at the Howard Greenberg Gallery in New York and is also a trusted assistant to Saul.

Welcome Saul, it’s a pleasure to show your work here.

Manifesto

In-Public was set up in 2000 to provide a home for Street Photographers.

Our aim is to promote Street Photography and to continue to explore its possibilities, we are a non commercial collective. All the photographers featured here have been invited to show their work because they have the ability to see the unusual in the everyday and to capture the moment. The pictures remind us that, if we let it, over-familiarity can make us blind to what’s really going on in the world around us.
