The Roman Vishniac Archive

The Roman Vishniac Archive at the ICP. "...The Roman Vishniac Archive of more than 3,000 prints was loaned to ICP by the photographer's estate in 1992. This important archive features renowned images of the Jewish ghettos in Eastern Europe taken between 1936 and 1939, and comprises vintage gelatin silver prints, later gelatin silver prints, and albumen prints. Also represented in this collection are Vishniac's New York City studio portraits from the 1940s and microscopic images of cells, insects, and animals from the 1950s and 1960s."
