"Including both recognized and previously unpublished photographs, Roman Vishniac Rediscovered is the first retrospective of the modernist and social documentary photographer’s work. This well-done, comprehensive study of Vishniac’s photographic work includes images of pre-Holocaust Jewish life in eastern Europe, the Nazi rise to power, postwar Europe, displaced persons camps, Jewish life in the U.S. in the 1940s and 50s, and colour photomicroscopy."
"It’s an impressive coffee-table book of nearly 400 pages brimming with evocative black-and-white photographs and thoughtful essays. The photographs in Roman Vishniac Rediscovered are eclectic. Pedestrians fill a crowded Jewish shopping district in Warsaw. A man steers a horse-drawn cart. A vendor hawks goods. An ultra-Orthodox Jew strolls on a cobblestone street. Boys study in a yeshiva. Beyond these iconic images, penetrating photographs portray pre-war Paris, Berlin in the aftermath of World War II, the arrival of Jewish refugees in DP camps and New York City. . . . Roman Vishniac Rediscovered pays homage to a dedicated and talented photographer whose imperishable photographs of Europe and America leave an indelible impression in our hearts and minds."
