5 internautes sur 5 ont trouvé ce commentaire utile  Par Robin Benson le 5 novembre 2011
Format: Relié
I was surprised at how small this book was when it arrived (of course, had I checked the Product Details I would have seen that it's about eight inches square) but now having looked through the pages several times I can see why Steidl published it this size. Photographers like Crewdson, Gursky or Shore require a large page because their work is saturated with detail. Here, these wonderful photos are a sliver of city life and presenting them about postcard size is perfect.

Leiter gives us an intimate look at the everyday in what seems to me an almost unique vision. Fred Herzog's colour work during the fifties and early sixties in Vancouver does seem slightly similar especially the vibrant reds that appear in both their work. Leiter's photos though, capture the small fragments of colour and shape on the street which he cleverly takes further by using reflection, shadow and soft focus to make an image that could be considered a sort of photo/painting.

I liked the way he uses commercial street signage (as does Herzog) to provide small areas of bright colour amongst the dark hues and shadows so prevalent in any city. I doubt any of the photos were taken in bright sunlight and even a few that include snow still have a dark hue to them.

The book has a hundred photos printed with a 175 screen on a matt art, one to page, except for two spreads and opposite each photo there is the briefest of caption: location and date. The first edition came out in 2006, second in 2007 and this one to coincide with an Amsterdam exhibition of Leiter's photos. The publication of this edition should bring the high prices of earlier copies down to a more realistic level. All three editions seem identical except for some type changes on the imprint page.

This is one of those books whose size works in harmony with the contents and really helps to bring Leiter's intimate city photos to life.

Un artiste découvert tardivement, absent des histoires de la photographie,
à découvrir de toute urgence dans ce livre magnifique.

Format: Relié
C'est aujourd'hui une chose entendue, ainsi que le résume Martin Harrison dans le texte figurant dans le recueil de photographies Early Color, "dans la seconde moitié du XXème siècle, par la grâce d'un langage qui sut user du fragment et de la contingence, Saul Leiter parvint à étendre les frontières de l'art photographique".

Ces "images évocatrices, à la qualité picturale", tirées de 1949 à 1960 (essentiellement des scènes de rue, prises pour la plupart aux Etats-Unis et singulièrement à New York, mais également dans quelques capitales européennes), "rendent couleur et mouvement dans une forme libre et semi-abstraite : fluide, spontanée. Les silhouettes réfléchies se dissolvent dans un brouillard élégiaque, intangibles, perdues dans le temps. (...) La vision de Saul Leiter tire parti d'un oeil prompt à s'imprégner de l'événement spontané. Confronté à la densité du réel, à des coordonnées fugitives dans le sens et l'espace, il déploie toute une gamme de stratégies - cadrages obliques, intersections complexes de plans, reflets ambivalents - pour distiller une poésie urbaine tour à tour tendre, incisive ou poignante. Il prend aussi des risques, dans son viol des conventions techniques et son indifférence aux limites de sensibilité de la pellicule.

Book desc/product details are INACCURATE (not the 2008 First Edition!) 7 juillet 2013
Par c. elisabeth dubois - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Don't get me wrong: this little book of photographs --and it is little (8" x 8" square)-- is quite lovely. Personally I would like for it to be larger in format...and yet Saul Leiter's work is in itself quiet and understated, and therefore the book's small size seems to reflect something important about the artist and his aesthetic.

HOWEVER, if you are at all concerned about such things, or a serious collector of photography books, you should know that amazon.com is NOT currently selling 2008/First Editions (as described in both the "Book Description" and "Product Details" areas above). The 2008 First Edition of this Steidl book sold out long ago, and what is currently shipping is the 2013/Fourth Printing edition of the book. I tried to bring this to the attention of Amazon.com staff via their customer service channels, but they seem incapable of understanding the crucial difference between a "First Edition" and a "Fourth Printing," and have therefore neglected to change the product information here on the site. Consider yourself warned!

An Excellent Monograph 1 juin 2007
Par Chris Kitze - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This monograph was suggested by a friend of mine who is a very talented designer and photographer -- he thought it would be a good touchstone for my work. The book is a smallish format (8 x 8 inches) with color plates, one per page of about 100 images. It was published in conjunction with a show at New York's Howard Greenberg Gallery.

Leiter was best known as a painter who exhibited alongside Philip Guston and Willem de Kooning in the 1950's, but his real talent may have been as a photographer. Focusing on urban street scenes in New York, Leiter creates a highly layered visual sensibility -- not a translation of abstract expresionism to photography, but a style uniquely his own that defines the photographic medium in a new way. Many of the images look forward to the digital montage styles that are gaining currency today, but with a lyrical beauty and rhythm that speak to the humanity and drama of the street. It is unfortunate it took the world 40 years to appreciate this visual genius and rediscover what he saw.

A must have photobook.

A great introduction to a new photographer (for me) 18 février 2010
Par Ron Obvious - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Our photography club ([...]) begins it's meetings with an educational series of photographers; one "legacy" and one "contemporary". Saul Leiter was a legacy shooter featured a few months ago so I picked up this book. Not a disappointment at all. I look through this book a few pages at a time before bed and I've looked through it two or three times now. These images are in one sense voyeuristic in that Leiter uses window reflections & other distortions to capture these images rather than point the camera directly at his subject. One reviewer notices that this gives a layered look to his images and he's right. This is a great book for opening a photographer's eye to new compositional possibilities and a possible expansion of style. Highly recommended.

Long overdue, this give this long over-looked artist a place to shine. The color reproductions are marvelous and have a woderfule bygone era quality about them.
