Lilo Raymond, ‘Still Life of Plate and Fork’, 1991 / 1991c, Contemporary Works/Vintage Works

On 11 x 14 in. paper.

Born in 1922, in Frankfurt, Germany, Raymond fled the Nazi regime when she was 16 years old. She settled in Manhattan, where she became part of the bohemian Greenwich Village art scene, taking various jobs as an artist's model, waitress, and tennis pro. She came to find her poetic vision when she studied with the legendary photographer and fine art printer David Vestal at the Photo League.

She taught for several years at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and published her first book of photographs, "Revealing Light". She began exhibiting her work at various galleries in the 1970s, eventually moving to the Hudson Valley later in life.

Raymond died in 2009.

Raymond's work can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan, and the Victorian and Albert Museum, among others. She received a Vision Award from the Center for Photography at Woodstock in 2008.
