Sabine Weiss is the last living humanist photographer. As a Freelance, she worked as Robert Doisneau and Ronis Izis for the Rapho agency. She is one of the few Swiss women photographers who has managed to live from her work and art in the 50’s. Today, she is still taking pictures, adjusting to technological evolution. There is no nostalgia in her work. She is a witness of her time, as she has been for over 60 years. The film intends to follow a chronological path, showing the work of this artist fluctuating between glossy paper, glitter and «poetic of commitment» reflecting the state of Paris from post-war to nowadays.
