Ilse Bing (“Everything was new.”)

The beginning of Ilse Bing’s presentation, coinciding with the exhibition Ilse Bing: Three Decades of Photography (February 21, 1986 – March 23, 1986), at ICP on March 15, 1986:

“Now it’s my turn… There is hardly anybody alive who not only participated in the early development of modern photography, but who is still able to give you a direct picture of this fascinating time, a picture with still a heartbeat in it. And it was interesting because everything was new. We had nothing to hold on to…”
