Saul Leiter

Recommended Posts

For those who haven't seen it, there's a nice gallery of photographs by Saul Leiter on The Guardian at:  http://tinyurl.com/l2ly7p7

Due to my sheer ignorance I had never heard of him, but the photographs look very reminiscent of Ernst Haas to me.  Which can only be a good thing.

Saul was one of the great Life Magazine photographers, Steve.  He died just the other day, I believe.  His forte was sports but like all staff photographers on both Life and Look he shot everything on an assignment rotation. 

 

After looking around for Leiter on Google I have to seriously consider that I may well have him mixed up with someone else. It is a puzzlement. Sorry, Steve.  :wacko:

Neil Leifer maybe?  At any rate it gave me an excuse to have a look at some of his great sports photos too (and I'm not even a great sports fan).

Neil Leifer! Of course. Where have all the proper nouns gone?   :(
