Model Photographer

Successful successor: Larry Fink's Hungarian Debutante Ball, 1978

by R.C. Baker@ Village Voice

Photographer Lisette Model once told her students at the New School, "Photography is the easiest art, which perhaps makes it the hardest." How true—painting and drawing demand specialized training, but everyone takes snapshots, so the Vienna-born Model (1901–1983) instilled in her pupils a search for beauty beyond the surfeit of information that even banal photographs deliver.
