Saul Leiter

Talking of photography, I recently was made aware of this documentary about Saul Leiter. He was a lovely man who took beautiful photographs but didn't become better known until very late in his life.

I was watching the film and Googled Saul only to find he had died just a few weeks ago. He said what I was trying to sum in in the last last post I wrote. "When we do not know why the photographer has taken a picture and when we do not know why we are looking at it, all of a sudden we discover something that we start seeing. I like this confusion."
