The Viennese born Lisette Model was trained to become a classical musician. After moving to Paris in 1926, she abandoned all musical interests, and took to the visual arts, first studying painting before she picked up a camera. Model has said, I just picked up a camera without any kind of ambition to be good or bad. And especially without any ambition to make a living My whole freedom working in photography comes because I say to myself, ‘let’s see what is going on in this world. Let’s find out. How do these people look?
