    Had passerby looked in the direction he pointed his camera they would have been puzzled for they would have seen nothing His art consisted in making virtual events out of what appeared to be nothing in particular With a touch as light as chiffon he visualizes a city suspended in its purposes yet filled with subliminal import — Max Kozloff from the introductionI first stumbled across the brilliant street photography of Saul Leiter just one week before he died near the end of 2013 This turned out to be terrible timing as books of Leiter's work promptly became unavailable in new copies or prohibitively expensive when used So I wound up buying this little Thames Hudson Photofile because it was the only Leiter book I could affordI was worried that the size about 5 x 8 would leave the photographs too small to be appreciated But Leiter's striking layered images — part documentary and part dream — come through just fine The reproductions are pretty good in both color and black white at least to my amateur eye and Leiter's fondness for vertical framing suits the format This may not deliver the same impact as a full sized photo book but it makes an excellent introduction to an outstanding artist I'll definitely check out some other volumes in the Photofile series

    Doesn't feature my favourite of Leiter's work but a nice book nonetheless
