saul leiter:: street scenes

Saul Leiter's vintage photography of urban winter streets, always seem to look warm and romantic from this beach, vantage point.
Having no formal training in photography, Leiter began shooting New York street scenes in the 1940s.
He once noted his love for using expired colored film for its result of surprising and odd shift in color.
Saul Leiter's work was the subject of a major 2008 exhibition at the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson in Paris.

Gorgeous images, Megan. I'm always fascinated by truly talented "self taught" artists.
