Lisette Model: Photographs from the Canadian Photography

Now at Boca Museum of Art

	 Born in Vienna in 1901, Lisette Model was an influential figure in mid-twentieth century          Ella Fitzgerald  Erroll Garner
photography, best known for her direct portrayal of the peculiarities of average people captured
candidly in everyday situations. Her work was regularly published in publications such as
Harper’s Bazaar and included in the 1940 inaugural photography exhibition at the Museum
of Modern Art in New York. Once her work went public, Model inspired other photographers
to challenge some of the prevailing conventions of the time.
	 Initially trained as a musician, she became a photographer in the early 1930s, some nine
years after having moved to France. She discovered photography in Paris and joined André
Kertész’s circle of artists. Although Model made photographs over a period of almost 50

stages of her career, from her early social documentary photographs taken on the streets of
Paris and Nice in the early 1930s through to her later New York work.
	 Model’s bold, lively images, which sometimes verge on the satirical, are a record of her
encounters with people and street life in Paris, Nice, and New York. Advocating a subjective
interpretive approach to photography, one of Model’s most oft-quoted directives to her
students was “Shoot from the gut!” Model was also known for the profound impact that her
