American Photographer Saul Leiter
As the fall arts & concert season ramps up I'm in the mood to discover new artists of all veins. I have tickets to dance and music concerts and will be attending a couple of art exhibits (including the current one at the Seattle Art Museum featuring the work of Andrew Wyeth); but I recently realized that I have nothing on my schedule featuring photography. I really have to fix this - toot sweet!
I recently ran across the work of American photographer Saul Leiter whose was an important contributor to the photography genre known as The New York School. His work has a mysterious air and the way that many of his images are captured through foggy windows and scratchy mirrors makes you feel as the photographer is revealing a sliver of life that wans't meant to see. And although his work won't be coming to Seattle any time soon, rediscovering his work renewed my interest in photography. Now I just have to find an exhibit!
