Saul Leiter is best known for his colour photos of everyday life on the streets of New York, made between 1948 and 1960. Amid the hubbub of the city, he succeeded in recording tranquil moments of everyday beauty, transforming ordinary situations into what is described as urban visual poetry. By selecting and combining the photos, we designed a layout for the exhibition that highlights the different themes of Saul Leiter in a calm, serene manner.
