Photographer Saul Leiter: A Retrospective is now up and running at the Bunkamura Museum of Art in Tokyo. The expansive exhibition features more than 200 works, including paintings, painted nudes, and ephemera such as Leiter’s cameras and personal correspondence, in addition to classic and previously unseen photographs. All About Saul Leiter, published by Seigensha Art Publishing, was released to coincide with the show.

Saul Leiter (1923-2013) was a leading fashion photographer in New York since the 1950's, until he was forced to retire from commercial photography in the 1980's started focusing on his individual work and disappeared from the world. It was a collection of his work that he published with Steidl Verlag in Germany in 2006 that brought him back to the limelight of the world of photography. He was 83 years old by then. THe re-discovery of Saul Leiter became a big sensation and led to numerous exhibitions and publications. In 2012 a documentary film titled "In No Great Hurry: 13 Lessons in Life with Saul Leiter" (published in Japan in 2015) was released, making his name and works known to even more people
