Mark Schwartz and Bettina Katz Photography Gallery | Gallery 230
In 1929 Ilse Bing switched to the Leica—a new small 35mm camera that encouraged spontaneity and experimentation. Bing’s avant-garde style soon brought her success as a fine art and fashion photographer in 1930s Paris. In 1941 she immigrated to New York, where her career faltered until her star rose again in the 1970s.

Self-Portrait with Leica, 1931, printed 1980s. Ilse Bing (American, 1899–1998). Gelatin silver print; 26.7 x 30.5 cm. The Cleveland Museum of Art, The A. W. Ellenberger Sr. Endowment Fund, 2019.177. © Estate of Ilse Bing
