Opening Reception: Street Visions: Europe 1934
Hosted By: Hebrew Union College (HUC)
A remarkable window into Europe before World War II will be seen by the public for the first time in this photography exhibition, which reveals ordinary life on the brink of radical change. In the summer of 1934, seventeen-year-old Richard J. Scheuer embarked on a two-month journey through France, Italy, Yugoslavia, Hungary, Poland, and the Soviet Union. Informed by the avant-garde street photography of that era, his 35 mm camera captured compelling images — from the Jewish quarter of Warsaw and the Moscow State Yiddish Theater to the bazaars of Yugoslavia and the baths of Budapest. The negatives were developed and contacted but never developed into prints. These newly recovered treasures are being introduced, 88 years after they were created, as powerful witnesses to a now vanished world.
