About the artist:

Saul Leiter (1923- 2013) is a leading pioneer of early colour photography. His depictions of New York are compared to works of impressionists like Edgar Degas and Claude Monet. His abstract photographs focus on the ordinary - colours, shapes and figures. All these elements, together with the author's technique, give the viewer an opportunity to see a completely different, soft and romantic, side of New York City.

With the full support of the Saul Leiter Foundation, the Benrido artisans have printed eight images which were selected by Saul before his passing in November 2013. This specially made portfolio is an embodied realisation of an artist’s work and passion that combine the “personal nature” of Saul’s photographs and the “delicate human touch inherent in the collotype process”.
