In No Great Hurry: 13 Life Lessons with Saul Leiter

Saul Leiter is the subject of an upcoming documentary by filmmaker Tomas Leach. The photographer, now in his 80s, is still living in New York City. In a recent interview he explained why he chose to work in color, over the preferred choice of black & white at the time, saying, “I never felt the need to do what everyone else did. And I wasn’t troubled by the fact that other people were doing other things.” These days, he says, “I realize that the search for beauty is not highly popular… Agony, misery and wretchedness, now these are worth perusing.”


Tilda Swinton’s Surprise Performance at MOMA

Actress Tilda Swinton is performing the art of sleeping at New York City’s Museum of Modern Art.

She presents her one-person piece called “The Maybe”. In “The Maybe,” Swinton lies sleeping in a glass box for the day. The exhibit will move locations within the museum every time Swinton performs.
There is no published schedule for the piece, which will occur about a half dozen more times through the end of the year.
