Saul Leiter, early color
Came by a book of Saul Leiter’s work in the painting section (very fitting as it happens) of a book store, which had some gorgeous work that actually made me think of Ghirri. I think it is safe to name Leiter as part of the 40s-50s New York School (Louis Faurer, Weegee, Robert Frank, etc), and if is so he’s the only one I’m aware of that shot in color. Beautifully, I might add. (A decade pre-Eggleston too).
