Foto Colectania begins a cycle of guided visits to the exhibition SAUL LEITER: In Search of Beauty, in which Ignasi Aballí, Juan Bufill and Txema Yeste will offer us their particular reading on the surprising precursor of color photography.
Foto Colectania shows the work of Saul Leiter, the surprising precursor of color photography
Leiter combined photography and painting all his life, and continued painting daily until his death in November 2013 at age 89. But the camera became the medium through which he managed to capture and interpret the life of New York City in multi-layered compositions, as well as in intimate scenes, as nobody had done before.
Correspondence is an on-line project that wants to reflect on the relevance that photography has taken in contemporary visual culture without losing historical perspective and its original contexts of creation and dissemination.
