Lisette Model : A Performance in Photography, Paperback Book

Lisette Model : A Performance in Photography Paperback


This title offers a fascinating exploration of the work and legacy of acclaimed photographer Lisette Model.

Photographer Lisette Model (1901-1983) is equally renowned for her shoot-and-run portraits of strangers and her mystification of her own life story.

George Steeves, himself a celebrated photographer with similar interests to those of his subject, examines and extrapolates upon the life of this great photographer.

Viewing Model as a performer as much as a photographer, he dissects her art, technique, and tumultuous working life as lived in three distinct acts.

To do so he has selected specific works from Model's extensive portfolio which he sensitively presents herein.
