Saul Leiter exhibits his mastery of capturing the indecisive moment, the in-between segment in time when nothing of much importance is taking place, yet his photographs somehow resonate a much more profound sense of drama within them. An American, born in 1923, Saul has made New York his home since 1946, where he established himself mostly as a fashion photographer. He associated himself with other contemporary photographers with whom all were established as being part of the New York School of Photography of the 40's and the 50's.
The composition in his work is so very intriguing, with the off set perspective and how he captures the scene. His subjects juxtaposed off center and unpredictably captured with in the frame of the lens is somehow so captivating.
