When

-

Lisette Model (b. 1901 Vienna, Austria; d. 1983 New York, NY) was one of the most influential street photographers, best known for her direct portrayal of the peculiarities of average people captured candidly in everyday situations. She discovered photography when she moved to Paris and joined André Kertész’s circle. In 1937 she decided to become a photographer and the next year she immigrated to New York City. Model’s work appeared regularly in publications such as Harper’s Bazaar and her work was included in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1940. She was also an influential artist and teacher who famously taught Diane Arbus.

This exhibition was organized by the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery  of Canada in partnership with the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
