The Liberating Lens: Jewish American Photographers Picture the Modern World

Description
In the middle decades of the 20th century, Jews turned to photography in large numbers as a way to earn a living, a means of self-expression, a form of political activism, and a mode of artistic creativity. This lecture looks at the liberating power of the camera. What did Jewish Americans see when they pictured the modern world? And how did taking photographs liberate them?
