Behind the Scenes of an Exhibition: Emile Bocian in Chinatown
Hosted By: The Center for Jewish History
In partnership with the Museum of Chinese in America (MOCA), the Center for Jewish History has launched a new online exhibition, An Unlikely Photojournalist: Emile Bocian in Chinatown, a never-before-seen collection of images of Manhattan’s Chinatown in the 1970s and 80s.
Emile Bocian (1912-1990) was the child of Jewish immigrants who spent the last two decades of his life living and working in Chinatown as a photojournalist for The China Post, a Chinese-language daily. He photographed protests, celebrations, and scenes of daily life, as well as storefronts and streetscapes that provide a glimpse into a vanishing New York.
