Paintings by New York School photographer Saul Leiter, an exhibition curated by Carrie Springer, opened at the Knoedler Project Space last night. Saul Leiter is best known for his early 1950's and 1960's color photographs. "Saul Leiter was a painter and only became a photographer when color photography could encompass the distinct color palette he wanted to include in his images. Since the 1940s, this inveterate walker has trawled the streets of New York, capturing its colors and spirit. His liking for disarray, solitude and elusiveness make him a unique artist, quite unconcerned about joining the throng." Steidl Books.
