Saul Leiter, Early Black and White, 2014

This monumental Saul Leiter publication was published shortly after his death in November 2013. It was actually co-published, by Steidl & the Howard Greenberg Gallery.  The Howard Greenberg Gallery played an important role in the later career of Saul Leiter. The New York gallery have exhibited his work regularly since 1993. This two volume publication is housed in a somewhat structurally inadequate open-slipcase. Divided into Volume I. Interior and Volume II. Exterior, each book offers a carefully composed, often touchingly intimate, view into Saul Leiter’s world. When thinking of Saul Leiter, his colour images instantly spring to mind, and one tends to think that was where his strength lay. This well-edited and wonderfully-printed publication shows that his range was much greater than expected.

Volume I. Exterior opens with a 22 page essay by Max Kozloff.

Volume II. Exterior opens with an essay by Jane Livingston originally published in 1992 and reworked for this publication.
