Roman Vishniac Rediscovered
October 25 2018 – 24 February 2019, The Jewish Museum
Presented simultaneously at Jewish Museum London and The Photographers’ Gallery, Roman Vishniac Rediscovered is the first UK retrospective of Russian born American photographer, Roman Vishniac (1897–1990). The exhibition presents radically diverse bodies of work and positions Vishniac as one of the most important social documentary photographers of the 20th century whose work also sits within a broader tradition of 1930s modernist photography.
The V&A’s new Photography Centre has opened with the major display Collecting Photography: From Daguerreotype to Digital, which explores photography as a way of ‘collecting the world’, from the medium’s invention in the 19th century to the present day – including this photo of Jimi Hendrix in 1968 by Linda McCartney, one of 63 photographs donated by Sir Paul McCartney.
