Works by Lisette Model

Works by Lisette Model at Zabriskie Gallery in New York. "...Lisette’s first photographic series in 1936, Promenade des Anglais, demonstrated her already-mature ability to capture the brilliant vitality of her subjects. The series captures people on the street in states of distress and repose. Recognizing her talent, Ralph Steiner arranged her first show at MoMA and published her photos in PM magazine. She had garnered the attention of Edward Steichen, who ensured her place at MoMA. She spent the 40s working for Harper’s Bazaar and much of the remainder of her life teaching at the New School for Social Research. Among her pupils were Diane Arbus, whose work bears Model’s stamp of influence. Lisette Model died in 1983 in New York."
