Predicting The Past: Zohar Studios, The Lost Years

The Contemporary Jewish Museum

This exhibition of photography and installation by Los Angeles-based artist Stephen Berkman, who grew up in the Bay Area, features images by the nineteenth century Jewish immigrant photographer Shimmel Zohar from his studio on the Lower East Side in New York City. Prints in elaborate Victorian frames address both Jewish life and the scientific state of understanding over one hundred years ago. In addition, environmental installations utilize antique technological visual phenomena.
