Weekend Inspiration: Saul Leiter

As I am sure my blog is certainly not the focus of your daily-lives, and going through 2 Mondays and Fridays without a movie marathon and food fight is probably a normal thing, I thought I would contribute to this thought-roll I hope you enjoy. The coming of Canadian Autumn would be a good time to talk photography; colour photography. With these wonderful colours appearing around us only once a year, I always find myself a bit more inspired. One inspiration I go back to when I think of colour photography is the work of Saul Leiter, American photographer and painter who's work during the 1940s and 50s contributed greatly to the evolution of colour photography.

What I love about his work is the precise perception he invokes; through his street photographs that seem to capture not only the environment, but the atmosphere and emotion of the time.

Here is a sample of his work that has inspired some of the work I have done in the past and will continue to do.
