Here is an amazing talk about master photographer Saul Leiter by Ted Forbes from The Art of Photography.

Saul Leiter (December 3, 1923 – November 26, 2013) was an American photographer and painter whose early work in the 1940s and 1950s was an important contribution to what came to be recognized as the New York school of photography.

Saul Leiter has become known as one of the great colorists and photographers of our time. He spent 60 years photographic the streets of New York City. His work embodied both elements of Abstract Expressionism and Japanese minimalism. His work embodied themes of umbrellas, snow, café’s and brightly colored cars. His work abstracted in reflection and glass distortion. He was an innovator.
