Jean Pearson vista por Saul Leiter (1948)

"Jean Pearson" (1948), a portrait of the aspiring actress whom Mr. Leiter's friend W. Eugene Smith made the subject of a famous Life magazine photo-essay, is lovely in a soft-focus, Pictorialist way. The starkly black-and-white picture of Ms. Pearson's face framed between her two hands is saved from being saccharine by the intense introspection Mr. Leiter's picture shows."
