    Don Draper would have loved these, but one of them is repeated (look for 463). Brilliant!

    Beautiful–but that metal pay phone (12th from bottom) is not from the 50s–it’s a 1980s-present NYC subway pay phone. All the rest look absolutely genuine!

    truly, truly wonderful shots. What an eye for mood and structure. Particularly No 7. More than good, great.

    Sense of colour and composition – immpecable. Selection of point of focus – sublime.

    Beautiful images, so considered and amazing use of colour, composition and cropping. The red theme running throughout and mostly reflections or fragments of people – an amazing slant on street photography.

    Saul Leiter did stuff that anyone could do. Problem was no one had done it. Until Saul. Universally loved at the time, and always great to see again the work of a master.
