Saul Leiter • That’s Not My Age

Tuesday, 12 April 2016

“Saul Leiter, by employing a sheet of glass as his leading actor, reminds us that every photograph, like every painting, is infiltrated by selfhood, and while photography in particular offers us images so devastatingly akin to the way we see the world, we must not forget that it’s always also a flat, silent otherworld—a canvas, a plate, a sheet of glass, inflected by the artist’s dreaming eye.” Izabella Scott • Photographers’ Gallery
