RIP Saul Leiter

December 4, 2013

The wonderful, painterly master of colour Saul Leiter died a few days ago. If you haven’t seen his work, take a look here

My own efforts at colour street work are influenced by him – I’m drawn to smudged reflections, saturated colours, indistinct figures (but am not in his league, of course)
