Who made this picture?

Cool image. Whose is it?

I find this book's cover visually appealing. I'd like to see more of the photographer's work but I can't search for more until I figure out the person's name.

Any ideas?

His name is Saul Leiter. More images here.

Name is on the back cover of the book, found via Google books.

You can see the image in this blog post, as well.

It is Saul Leiter, but it also reminds me a bit of Luigi Ghirri. It's the aesthetic of the color snapshot. Interesting to compare the shots of Italy to the shots of the US.

Good grief, you popped out a name that quickly and supplied me with a treasure chest too? Admiral, I think I love you. Thanks.
