Richard Avedon once said about Lillian Bassman: “Everything she does has a positively magic power. She is the only one in the history of photography who managed to visualize that breathtaking moment between the apparition and disappearance of things.”
Why did Lillian Bassman, who actually wanted to become a painter, turn to (fashion) photography? What makes her fashion photography so distinctive, unique and timeless? How did she influence the development of the genre? How did she develop her special lab techniques? How was the artist rediscovered by art directors and finally by galleries and museums?
Frans Ankoné, creative director of MOAM collective, stylist, curator and “Vogue” columnist, and curator Brigitte Woischnik give a guided tour of the exhibition „Lillian Bassman & Paul Himmel. Two Lives for Photography“.
Guided tour in English.
Limited number of participants. Registration is required: email@example.com
