Gallery CAMERA WORK is pleased to present an exhibition with works of Lillian Bassman from January 21, 2017. The show will include more than 50 main works and will be the first gallery exhibition held in Berlin after Lillian Bassman had passed away in 2012.
Born in 1917 in Brooklyn, Lillian Bassman worked as an artist’s model, a textile designer, and a fashion illustrator before joining Harper’s Bazaar in 1941. She lived and worked in New York until her death in 2012. Solo exhibitions of her photographs have been presented in London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Munich, New York, and Paris. In 1996, Bassman received the Agfa Life Time Achievement Award and the Art Directors Club Award. Her images have been reproduced in multiple monographs including Lillian Bassman: Lingerie (2012), Lillian Bassman: Women (2009), and Bassman and Himmel, which accompanied a major retrospective at Haus der Photographie Deichtorhallen Hamburg in 2009. Bassman’s photographs are held in major public and private collections worldwide.
