F11 Foto Museum is proud to present “Ilse Bing – Paris and Beyond” exhibition through over 100 works of this influential female photographer who contributed to turn Paris the centre of modern photography in the 1930s. A majority of the vintage prints in this collection were taken at the height of Bing’s photography career in Paris and the rest saw the drastic change of her spirit after war influence. This exhibition is an image memoir of Bing’s dramatic life in the face of stark reality.
Born to a wealthy Jewish family in Frankfurt in 1899, “Queen of the Leica” Ilse Bing was once amongst the very first few women photographers who influentially mastered the latest avant-garde handheld Leica 35mm camera in the 1930s. She was also amongst the first to use solarisation, electronic flash and night photography and established her own distinctive photographic style adoring romanticism, symbolism and dream-imagery of surrealism. She died in 1998, just a few days before her 99th birthday.
Her work can be found in many major public collections including the Metropolitan Museum of Art; the Museum of Modern Art; the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; the Art Institute of Chicago; as well as Victoria and Albert Museum.
