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.”
