These vintage contact sheets, each consisting of twelve unrelated Rolleiflex negative frames, document a variety of locations and subject matter, including basement dwellings on Krochmalna Street in Warsaw and a TOZ summer camp in Slonim. Marked in red pencil in Vishniac’s hand to indicate his selections and desired croppings, these contact sheets demonstrate the development of the photographer’s distinctive style over the course of his JDC assignment in eastern Europe.
