Roman Vishniac's photographs are the most widely recognized and reproduced images of Jewish life in Eastern Europe before the Holocaust. His images shape our mental pictures of that vanished world, yet only a few hundred of them have ever been printed or published. Maya Benton, Adjunct Curator at the International Center of Photography, discusses the recent donation of Vishniac's entire estate to the ICP and the creation of the Vishniac archive. The presentation will include never-before-seen moving film footage, images, negatives, and contact sheets.
Tickets are $15, $12 for students, $10 for Jewish Museum members.
