A Craftswoman of Photography

I shall admit the name did not resonate with me at first, but the work … the work certainly did. Sabine Weiss, the last of the “humanist” photographers, died on December 28, 2021, according to a New York Times piece by Clay Risen.

“From the start I had to make a living from photography; it wasn’t something artistic,” Weiss told Agence France-Presse in 2014. “It was a craft, I was a craftswoman of photography.”

Her work was in the iconic Family of Man exhibit, so I had seen it. Now, I want to see more.
