Lisette Model – Shooting Off My Mouth
Spitting Into the Mirror – A Narrative Autobiography
This explosive new interpretation of the art of photographer Lisette Model (1901-1983) combines a selection of her signature and lesser-known photographs with pages from her more than thirty notebooks in a meta-fictional soliloquy by the artist.
Stepping beyond usual photographic explanations of her work, it explores the psychic forces in Model’s life, her extensive musical training, and the peculiar creative process by which she transposed modern sounds into the unique visual gifts that distinguished her art and teaching. Manfred Heiting’s richly colored book design delightfully enhances Model’s eccentric modernity.
