These little Thames and Hudson Photofile photo books are really excellent 'tasters' or budget buys to get an overview of great photographers works. For the money, they never disappoint... a handy format, decent printing, and a fine selection of photos. More expensive books can be bought if you want larger pages, or finer reproduction, but I can't find any criticism for the few pounds these books cost.
Saul Leiter's work was unknown to me until I came upon a few photos online, so I was very pleased to see and learn more of this remarkable street photographer's images in this book. Highly recommended!

I came across Saul Leiter's work when studying for my undergraduate degree in Photography. This work only came to be published many years after its inception. Yet, the mystical, surrealist quality of Leiter's work could have easily been photographed last week. He was one of the first street photographers to use colour at a time when Black and White images ruled. Do buy it, you will not be disappointed, it is a real gem.

I recently saw a few of Saul Leiters photos and immediately decided I needed a proper introduction to his work. Having previously bought a couple of others from the Photofile series I had no hesitation in making this purchase which in turn has led me to buy Early Colour by Leiter himself.
These are great books for whetting the appetite when you discover a new artist but aren't sure you want to spend bigger bucks.

A great little introduction to this photographer's work. Although taken many decades ago, these images surprise given their unorthodox and contemporary sensibility. The images are of a photographer who approaches the medium with a painter's eye for colour and layered texture. Kozloff's introduction is a marvellous piece of perceptive writing. If you already have a work by Leiter, t is worth getting this one just for that illuminating text.

I love these small cheap Thames & Hudson Photofile books I can keep in my bag and read while waiting for a train. This one has some very nice images and well worth buying. I was interested in this for its use of colour photography and to give me some ideas which is has.
