Ilse Bing: Queen of the Leica celebrates the great woman photographer Ilse Bing (1899 - 1998) in an exhibition composed entirely of her sumptuous and rare vintage prints. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, Bing studied math and art history before picking up a camera, decamping to Paris, and launching a photographic career that would last three decades.
“The instant I set foot in Paris, I knew I was in the atmosphere that suited me,” she wrote. “I breathed the very air of Paris and felt ready to flourish.”
