All About Saul Leiter
With texts by Margit Erb, Pauline Vermare and Motoyuki Shibata
Publisher: Thames & Hudson
Medium: Softcover with jacket
Size: 21 x 15 cm
New edition 2019
Beautifully designed retrospective book, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Bunkamura Museum of Art in Tokyo. This sincere volume offers an in-depth look at this American visual artist’s oeuvre. Known for his photography and painting, a rare and beautiful combination of Japanese and French influences runs through Leiter’s entire body of work. His passion for French impressionism and post-impressionism likely played a role in his love and admiration for Japanese art, leading to the characteristic poetic grace and delicateness seen in his images, as well as an acute awareness of transient, ephemeral beauty.
Republished by Thames & Hudson in English in 2018 and 2019.
