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. 

An iconoclast who stood by his ideals and vision, with the use of framing devices, bold hues and reflective surfaces, Leiter had the ability to transform ordinary street scenes in close proximity to his New York flat, into pure visual poetry… 

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