Open now – Saul Leiter: An Unfinished World

MK Gallery presents largest UK exhibition of works by Saul Leiter, pioneer of colour photography

Photographs are often treated as important moments but really they are fragments and souvenirs of an unfinished world.‘ – Saul Leiter

A major survey of works by American photographer Saul Leiter (1923 – 2013), one of the most important practitioners of the post-war period and a pioneer of colour photography, opens today at MK Gallery in Milton Keynes.

Saul Leiter: An Unfinished World is the largest exhibition of Leiter’s work to take place in the UK, featuring 171 photographs alongside a selection of over 40 of Leiter’s lesser-known paintings, presenting a complete overview of his life’s work for the first time. 39 of these works have never been exhibited before.
