"Street Scene" (1959) by Saul Leiter

“I must admit that I am not a member of the ugly school. I have a great regard for certain notions of beauty even though to some it is an old fashioned idea. Some photographers think that by taking pictures of human misery, they are addressing a serious problem. I do not think that misery is more profound than happiness.”
— Saul Leiter, quoted in Saul Leiter by Agnès Sire
