Roman Vishniac photographs

»www.youtube.com/watch?v=7qI8vbRzhCQ


Photos of the year starting in 1930. Some of the photos were taken in the Polish Ghettos in 1939.

Roman Vishniac ( /vni.æk/; Russian: ; August 19, 1897 -- January 22, 1990) was a Russian-American photographer, best known for capturing on film the culture of Jews in Central and Eastern Europe before the Holocaust. A complete archive of his work now rests at the International Center of Photography.

Vishniac on science;

"It starts with curiosity," he says. "With amazement at beauty - with awe." He believes that just as man's first curiosity about his place in the universe may have been aroused by the spectacle of a setting sun or an insect's progress, so may a child's awareness of what we call science - microbiology, chemistry and the rest - be triggered by the riotous colors of riboflavin, or the weird dance of the conjugating protozoa seen through a microscope.

"For that is the stuff of science, is it not?" he says happily. "Life. Action. Reality. And it is beautiful!"
