I was googling to read more about Saul Leiter when I found an article written by Jacqui Palumbo. This paragraph from her article struck me.

And I don’t think one should have to apologize for it,” he said in In No Great Hurry.Why Saul Leiter Kept His Colorful Street Photography Secret for Decades – Jacqui Palumbo
