Born in 1923 in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, Leiter moves to New York City in 1946 to become an artist. He had developed an early interest in painting, but was soon encouraged to pursue a career in photography by W. Eugene Smith, who was already a renowned photographer. He started with black and white and switched to colour doing fashion-work for Esquire and Harper’s Bazaar. Leiter has made an enormous and unique contribution to photography – his abstracted forms and compositions have an almost painterly quality. In 2008 the Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson mounted Leiter's first museum exhibition in Europe. Corresponding with the first universal retrospective of the photographer Saul Leiter at the Deichtorhallen Flo Peters Gallery is showing some of his most unique images.
