The website This Long Century has recently published some images of Saul Leiter’s sketchbooks. Leiter says about making sketchbooks: “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.”

In addition the gallery f5.6 in Munich is hosting an exhibition entitled “Early Color”, with works by Evelyn Hofer, Raghubir Singh as well as Saul Leiter.
