Saul Leiter/Paul Auster: It Don't Mean a Thing
‘The Gould Collection’ is a series of books that brings together contemporary photographers with writers. The second volume presents 58 photographs by Saul Leiter with the story “It Don’t Mean a Thing” by Paul Auster. Black-and-white and colour photographs by Leiter from 1947 through the 1970s – with many images never before published – are paired with Auster’s tale of interconnected life events and chance encounters. Reflections on New York City, with its urban rhythm, people, and places, feature prominently in the work of both photographer and writer, providing a unifying focus for the book. This reprint of the original 2017 edition has an updated binding and cover.
