Thames & Hudson Presents: Saul Leiter: Discovery and Rediscovery – David Campany In Conversation with Howard Greenberg

Thursday 16 May 2024
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Screening Room

Saul Leiter (1923-2013) was an artist who  photographed for the magazines of the second half of the 20th century, such as Esquire, Show, Harper’s Bazaar and Nova, shooting fashion and other things. In 1970, he quit fashion work, and withdrew from any forms of public photography. He began to go through his archive and make prints. In 2006 a book of his photographs, Early Color, led to widespread acclaim. More books and exhibitions followed and Leiter came to be seen as an important early pioneer of the art of colour photography.  Writer and curator David Campany discusses Saul Leiter with gallerist Howard Greenberg, who has presented Leiter’s work since 1994.

Howard Greenberg

Formerly a photographer and founder of The Center for Photography in Woodstock in 1977, Howard Greenberg has been one of a small group of gallerists, curators and historians responsible for the creation and development of the modern market for photography. Howard Greenberg Gallery—founded in 1981 and originally known as Photofind—was the first to consistently exhibit photojournalism and ‘street’ photography, now accepted as important components of photographic art. Since its inception over forty years ago, Howard Greenberg Gallery has built a vast and ever-changing collection of some of the most important photographs in the medium. The Gallery’s collection acts as a living history of photography, offering genres and styles from Pictorialism to Modernism, in addition to contemporary photography and images conceived for industry, advertising, and fashion.
