Leo Touchet is an American photographer who has traveled to over fifty countries to photograph for corporate publications and national and international magazines including Life, Time, National Geographic, New York Times, Der Stern, Panorama, and Popular Photography.
Touchet’s interest in photography sprouted as a high school photographer. In the early 1960s he lived in Greenwich Village and maintained his interest by studying the archived photographs of Henri Cartier-Bresson, Paul Strand, Eugene Smith, Edward Steichen, and Gordon Parks in the Museum of Modern Art. In Rochester, New York, Touchet met Beaumont Newhall, then director of the George Eastman House Museum and bought a used Leica M3 from him. His meeting with Joan Liftin, a photo editor at the United Nations, was a turning point in his career. Liftin convinced him to be a full-time photographer, and then he hopped on the plane to Saigon, Vietnam for his first foreign trip as a photographer.
