Exhibition at Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography celebrates Sabine Weiss’ 90th Anniversary

MOSCOW.- In anticipation of The Christmas Holidays The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography and Lumiere Brothers Gallery present the solo exhibition of Swiss-French photographer Sabine Weiss. The exhibition is arranged to coincide with Sabine Weiss’ 90th anniversary, which she celebrated this summer.

Most of the pictures featured at the exhibition were taken in France in the 1950s-80s. This period was crucial in the formation of Sabine’s individual style. Apart from French photographs, The Center presents shots taken during the photographer’s trips to Burma, Morocco, Portugal and Malta. All photographs are gelatin silver printed and are provided by the artist.

Sabine Weiss was born in Saint-Gingolph, Switzerland in 1924. At the age of twelve she became interested in photography and dreamed of becoming a professional photographer. Pursuing her dream, Sabine entered a photography school in Genève and upon her graduation moved to Paris. In 1952 she signed a nine-year contract with Vogue magazine and began her collaboration with Parisian photo agency Rapho, on the invitation of Robert Doisneau. At the time, Weiss worked on commissions for European and American magazines Time, Life, Newsweek and Paris Match.

Sabine Weiss turned 90 in July 2014. A great celebration of the anniversary took place at the European House of Photography (Maison Européenne de la Photographie). Following Paris, the exhibition will open in Moscow.

Sabine Weiss’ photographs are in the collections of Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), New York Metropolitan Museum, Chicago Institute of Art, George Pompidou Center, European House of Photography, Kunsthaus Zurich, Lausanne Photography Museum. She bears the title of the Officer of the French Order of Arts and Letters.
