"The very best of Saul Leiter's work comes together as an almost novel-like stream of images, interspersed with poetic quotes by the man himself. I have never seen his work so delicately and thoughtfully presented." –Todd Hido, Photo-eye

These are accompanied by quotations from the artist himself that express his singular worldview.
