What Do You Know About Roman Vishniac?
Check out a great event featuring Tablet’s Alana Newhouse and Maya Benton
The International Center for Photography is hosting an event featuring two of our favorite people: Alana Newhouse and Maya Benton. The topic is the photographer Roman Vishniac, whose archives the ICP acquired just a few years ago.
Join ICP Adjunct Curator Maya Benton for a lecture on Roman Vishniac and a Q&A with Tablet Magazine Editor in Chief Alana Newhouse. Maya Benton is an art historian who focuses on documentary photographs of Jewish life in central and eastern Europe in the interwar period.
If you’re familiar with Vishniac, you’ll be happy. If you’re not familiar, read up on Vishniac from Alana Newhouse’s excellent piece in the New York Times Magazine, which also features Maya Benton, who worked with the Vishniac family.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.
I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.
We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.
