"If you’re familiar with art, the history of art and all the very great things that have been done, you don’t take yourself that seriously. There are photographers and artists who are very unfamiliar with the history and as soon as they do something they think they’ve done a Rembrandt. I haven’t been burdened by that kind of illusion." Saul Leiter interviewed by Evan Solochek, "A lifetime in color", Urban Milwaukee, 1. Oct. 2006.
