In honor of the centennial of Saul Leiter's birth, here is the official retrospective of a revolutionary figure in twentieth-century photography.

Saul Leiter photographed and painted almost every day for more than sixty years and amassed a vast archive, most of which remained unseen during his lifetime. He found inspiration within a few blocks of his Lower Manhattan apartment and was a master at discovering beauty in the most ordinary places. Leiter is celebrated today for his evocative color photographs of New York in the 1950s and 1960s, which were unknown at the time, but he also had success as a fashion photographer for Harper's Bazaar. All the while, he photographed black-and-white street scenes during his daily walks and nudes and intimate portraits at home, while continuing his painting explorations with abstract watercolors, whimsical sketchbooks and painted photographs.

Created in collaboration with the Saul Leiter Foundation, this definitive monograph brings together these diverse but interrelated bodies of work - including much work that had not previously been published - to reveal the complete artist for the first time.
