built this world of our own.

Art, Photography

Not only does Saul Leiter create whimsical images of New York City street life in the 1950’s but he uses a few of my favorite elements in his work; reflections, double exposures and subtle shocks of color. I can’t believe I have only just recently discovered his photographs. Can’t recommend enough checking out more of his work.
