© Saul Leiter | self-portrait, 1950's

Is it fair to say that you were more interested in evoking the character of New York City’s people rather than its architecture? 

- I didn’t photograph people as an example of New York urban something or other. I don’t have a philosophy. I have a camera. I look into the camera and take pictures. My photographs are the tiniest part of what I see that could be photographed. They are fragments of endless possibilities. 

Is there a philosophy or outlook that you have tried to communicate in your work? 

- I didn’t try to communicate any kind of philosophy since I am not a philosopher. I am a photographer. That’s it.

Photographers speak
