Photographic Visions of the Diaspora is dedicated to the work of the late Sy Edelstein, who spent years photographing Jewish shopkeepers from New York to Los Angeles. His work from the 1980s and ’90s captures a once vibrant but rapidly fading world of businesses that, as Edelstein said, “are a part of our lives, and whose presence we take for granted.”
Organized by Anne Hromadka, Guest Curator of the Art Collection and Exhibitions at HUC-JIR’s Jack H. Skirball Campus in Los Angeles, in partnership with campus’ Enhancement Committee.
