Ilse Bing in Berlin

Share:

Photographs by Ilse Bing, spanning from the 1930s to the 1950s, will be on show at the Berinson Gallery in Berlin until 13 August 2019.

German-American photographer Ilse Bing (born 1899 in Frankfurt-am-Main, died 1998 in New York) was a leading photojournalist and advertising photographer – and one of few women to establish themselves in these fields at the time. Renowned for her pioneering photographic techniques, she was among the first to experiment with electronic flash, solarisation, unusual perspectives and extreme magnifications. Her approach was strongly influenced by the work of André Kertész and Brassaï.

Bing purchased a Leica in 1929, just 3 years after it was released on the market. When she moved to Paris in 1930, she rapidly gained recognition as a commercial and artistic photographer – earning her the moniker ‘Queen of the Leica’. The exhibition in Berlin celebrates the artist’s oeuvre with more than 30 vintage prints, created from the 1930s to the 1950s in Paris and New York.
