Event Description

This presentation explores the role of Jews in studio photography in Britain, with a glance at the U.S. In Britain, Jews pioneered commercial practices and new technology.
One figure to be discussed, H. W. Barnett, boosted his fortunes in London with well-publicized excursions to St Louis and Milwaukee, making use of a network of Jews in photography—resulting in new ideas and approaches to the craft going back to the Old World. UWM’s Lisa Silverman will moderate a talkback session.
