The Photographers' Gallery is currently showcasing a retrospective on Saul Leiter's pioneering role in the emergence of color photography.
Lester, who moved to New York intending to become a painter, ended up working for magazines like Harper’s Bazaar, Elle and British Vogue, giving him recognition in the fashion world.

Saul Leiter: Retrospective will be on view at The Photographers' Gallery until April 3rd.
