The Design Observer has a couple of articles on Saul Leiter. The first includes a few examples of his paintings and the other focuses on the fragments of vernacular lettering in his photographs.

There is something soothing about his photography, and I imagine it's partially due to the fact that he seems like a rather gentle person in that trailer for the documentary about him. Thank you for sharing it.

I'm really drawn to what I've seen of his color photography (and abstract painting, too), but hadn't known about the film. Here's another recent interview. Thanks for this post!

This doesnt explain why people always want things from me. No thanks.

I am sincerely worried that pre-Internet "unsung exceptional people" are a non-renewable resource. And filmakers and authors are mining them out at an alarming pace.
