It is with an immense pleasure that Boogie Woogie Photography invites you to its forthcoming exhibition – “Sabine Weiss: A Tribute (1924-2021)”. The exhibition, running from the 6th of January to the 15th of February 2024, seeks to honor the legacy of Sabine Weiss, a monumental figure in the world of photography.
We invite you on Saturday 6 January from 2-7pm, to join the opening reception. We are delighted to welcome Françoise Killias Zillweger, the Deputy Consul General of Switzerland, at 4pm for a toast with Swiss wines and delicacies.
This year we are commemorating the centennial of Sabine Weiss’s birth in Switzerland, dating back to 1924. Sabine Weiss spent most of her life in Paris, capturing the city and its people with a depth and intimacy that only a true artist could achieve. Her work, often classified under humanist photography, is a testament to her keen eye, her deep empathy, and her unwavering dedication to unearthing and documenting human existence.
The exhibition features a selection of twenty-three of Weiss’s iconic works, alongside some lesser-known gems, carefully curated to portray the breadth and depth of her talent. Each photograph is a heritage to Weiss’s ability to capture the poetry of everyday life, the fleeting moments of beauty, joy, and melancholy that are so quintessentially human.
We are deeply grateful to the daughter of the artist, Marion Weiss, and to Photo Elysée in Lausanne who preserves the artist archives for their endorsement of the exhibition, as well as to Laure Augustins for her continuous support over the years.
The exhibition is presented together with 18th-century French museum-quality furniture and decorative art provided by the esteemed Kraemer Gallery in Paris.
Let us celebrate Sabine Weiss not just as a photographer, but as a pioneer, a storyteller, and to give praise to the power of the human spirit.
