Fed by thril­ling recent dis­co­ve­ries from Saul Leiter’s vast archi­ve, “In My Room” pro­vi­des an in-dep­th stu­dy of the nude, through inti­ma­te pho­to­graphs of the women Lei­ter knew. Sho­wing deeply per­so­nal inte­ri­or spaces, often illu­mi­na­ted by the lush natu­ral light of the artist’s stu­dio in New York City’s East Vil­la­ge, the­se black-and-white images reveal the uni­que col­la­bo­ra­ti­on bet­ween Lei­ter and his sub­jects.

In the 1970s, Lei­ter plan­ned to make a book of his nudes, but never rea­li­zed the pro­ject in his life­time. Now we are gran­ted a first-time look at this body of work, which Lei­ter began on his arri­val in New York in 1946 and chip­ped away at over the next two deca­des. Lei­ter, who was also a pain­ter, incorpo­ra­tes abs­tract ele­ments into the­se pho­to­graphs and often shows the influ­ence of his favo­ri­te artists, inclu­ding Bon­nard, Vuil­lard and Matis­se.

The pro­li­fic Lei­ter, who pain­ted and took pic­tures fer­vent­ly up to his death, worked in rela­ti­ve obscu­ri­ty well into his eigh­ties. Lei­ter pre­fer­red soli­tu­de in life, and resisted any type of explana­ti­on or ana­ly­sis of his work. With “In My Room”, Lei­ter ushers view­ers into his pri­va­te world while retai­ning his strong sen­se of myste­ry.
