With the Lisette Model exhibition, the Museum of Photography is continuing its cycle of presenting major figures of American photography, in close conjunction with its permanent collection.
Through her photography, Lisette Model’s work reflects a social, documentary and resolutely modern vision of image-making in its dynamism and the originality of her compositions. Lisette Model redefined an approach to documentary photography, shedding the classical strand and offering subjective portraits which, still today, influence a substantial part of photography.
The Lisette Model exhibition presents a set of 150 works evoking each of her iconic series: from the Promenade des Anglais in Nice, including tramps sleeping on sidewalks in Paris, superimposed reflections in shopwindows, pictures of legs captured from a New York subway entrance, but also prostitutes, drag queens or jazz club singers. The Lisette Model exhibition offers a unique vision – the most comprehensive ever presented in Belgium – of the photographer’s work.
