THE SKETCHBOOKS OF SAUL LEITER

I love what Saul Leiter says about painting in sketchbooks:
“I am very fond of my sketchbooks that I began in the 50s and still work on today. I think there is a certain freedom when you are absorbed in painting a sketchbook. You are not burdened to do something important. You are not dealing in big things. You are just thinking and the sketchbooks are a way to express your thinking. They are very intimate. I work on my sketchbooks almost every day. If I had to choose what I value the most in my work I might choose my sketchbooks. Here are two of my favorite sketchbooks. There are four here which are just covers titled, My Father and I. The other is Sketchbook #1 which I hope to publish as a book one day…”
Some of his sketchbooks will be on display at his show at the Deichtorhallen House of Photography, Hamburg in February 2012.
