Lisette Model's edgy, indelible point of view gave rise to a portrait of America at all social levels. Her New York City locales ranged from Coney Island to jazz clubs to local hangouts to Fifth Avenue. In 1951, Model was invited to teach at The New School for Social Research, where Berenice Abbott, a longstanding friend, was also teaching photography. Model soon developed into an outstanding mentor, impacting many significant artists including those on the panel and featured in the exhibit Lisette Model and Her Successors, on view at the Aperture gallery. The panel discusses her sphere of influence as an artist and educator.
