About Sabine WeissShe (born July 23, 1924) is a Swiss French photographer and one of the most prominent representatives of the French humanist photography movement. Also along with Robert Doisneau, Willy Ronis, Édouard Boubat and Izis. She was born in Switzerland, but became a naturalised French citizen in 1995. Sabine Weiss' father was a chemical engineer and made artificial pearls from fish scales. The family lived next to the border post and left Saint-Gingolph while she was still a child. Attracted at a young age by photography, she says: I realized very young that photography would be my means of expression, I was more visual than intellectual ... I was not very good at studying. When I left high school, I left on a summer day on a bicycle. Weiss began to photograph in 1932 with a bakelite camera bought with her pocket money and made contact prints on printing-out paper on her windowsill. Her father supported her in her choice, and she later learned photographic technique, from 1942 to 1946, from Frédéric Boissonnas, a studio photographer in Geneva. After this apprenticeship, she received the Swiss qualification in photography in 1945.
