Poetry of the Moment

Share:

Through to October 23, 2022, Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice dedicates a major retrospective to the oeuvre of Sabine Weiss. The Franco-Swiss photographer, who passed away at her home in Paris in December 2021, aged 92, ranked among the most important representatives of French humanist photography – on par with Robert Doisneau, Willy Ronis, Edouard Boubat, Izis and Brassaï.

The exhibition of over 200 photographs is the most comprehensive tribute to the artist’s work to date. In fact, Weiss had even opened her personal archive in Paris to contribute to this selection. The resulting showcase, which also includes vintage publications and magazines, encompasses the photographer’s entire career – from her beginnings in 1935, all the way to the 2000s. Her images of children and passers-by exemplify the artist’s penchant for figures and gestures as a means of capturing moods and emotions: a hallmark of French humanist photography, to which she remained faithful throughout her career.
