Saul Leiter, Harlem, 1960 (USA). Ah, I can feel the year really starting to wind down, can't you? I'm thinking this might actually be my last post of 2008, and what better way to finish than with this Leiter photo of a dapper gent. Maybe he's only now stumbling out of that bar into the bright light of day, but though his face remains in shadow the man looks good, just ever-so-slightly rumpled. I wasn't properly introduced to Leiter's work until early in 2008, but he is a fantastic photographer for me to have discovered in this year where I continued my intense love affair with all things urban and city. For more on Leiter and his exquisite New York and Paris street photography please visit the online magazine lens culture. As for me, if I don't have anything else to say before New Year's Day I'll be back then with some 2008 wrap-up. And here's to a 2009 filled with ever more art, music and travel.
