but saul is dead… he died five years ago today.
saul leiter – my favorite photographer and apparently a very friendly person to boot. if you haven’t seen ‘in no great hurry’ yet, of course don’t hurry, but don’t miss out on it :)
if you happen to be in berlin – there will be an exhibition starting december 1st in the ‘museum für fotografie’ right at zoologischer garten that features the (even) lesser well known nude portraits photographed by saul leiter. it will be a joint exhibition with works of helmut newton and david lynch. i’m looking forward to it and will probably skip the newton part :-)
*disclaimer: (unfortunately) none of these pictures are mine, of course – this is a feature post!
a tribute to saul leiter, he was the best. (in case you didn’t know that check out his stuff and maybe even watch ‘in no great hurry’). he’s gone for 14 months today.
found in kreuzberg and made with the panasonic 35-100mm f2.8 zoom that i had rented for the weekend. a great lens! maybe i’ll do a little review later…
i’ve heard today that saul leiter has died on tuesday. i’m a bit sad. i watched in no great hurry today for the second time. a great documentary film on saul leiter that i can absolutely recommend.
