"I am trained as a film-maker. There is nothing else I can do."
Saul Leiter Letter, Paris 1959
"I go out to take a walk, I see something, I take a picture. I take photographs. I have avoided profound explanations of what I do.” Saul Leiter
Saul Leiter Carol Brown, for ‘Harper’s Bazaar’ 1958
“One cannot say that I was successful [as a fashion photographer] but there was enough work to keep me busy. I was constantly aware that those who hired me would have preferred to work with a star such as Avedon. But it didn’t matter. I had work and I made a living. At the same time, I took my own photographs. Strangely enough, I knew exactly what I wanted and what I liked.” Saul Leiter
