Roman Vishniac (1897-1990) created a broad variety of photographic artwork. He was best known for his documentary photography of Jewish communities in pre-Holocast Eastern Europe. This discussion led by Howard J. Radzyner will examine the many facets of Visniac's photography.

Interest in Vishniac’s humanistic, documentary of the 1930s was rekindled and brought to the attention of the art and museum world around 1970 largely through the efforts of Cornell Capa. Vishaniac has been describes as a photographer, a biologist, an art collector, and teacher of art history. Please join us for the conversations related to Roman Vishniac as related to the worlds of art, museums, and publication.
