Saul Leiter, Saul Leiter, 2008

Dust jacket back and front

Dust jacket back and front


Published on the occasion of Saul Leiter’s exhibition at the Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris from January 17th to April 13th 2008. For the first time we see the photographer’s colour and black and white work side by side in book form. Saul Leiter’s visual universe is presented to us in amazing Steidl quality. The layout thoughtfully leaves space for the images to breathe, elegantly encouraging the viewer to dream. Sounds a bit corny I know, but take a look for yourself.

A one and a half pages preface by Agnès Sir, the director of the Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson.

A four page interview with curator Sam Stourdzé.

Published by Foundation Henri Cartier-Bresson in cooperation with Steidl Publishers in 2008.
