“It is not a coincidence,” says photographer Penny Wolin “that Jews are attracted to the alchemy of photography and photography has found its storytellers in Jews.” Over six years, Wolin had in-person encounters with 70 leading American Jewish photographers, including Robert Frank, Annie Leibovitz, and Arnold Newman. With a visual and verbal discussion, we will explore the motivations of Jews in photography.
Penny Wolin has authored three photographic monographs; her photographs are collected by the Smithsonian American Art Museum; she is the recipient of two National Endowment for the Humanities grants; was a contract photographer with LIFE Magazine; studied film at the American Film Institute and Visual Anthropology at UCLA.
