Photographer Roman Vishniac is best known for his iconic social documentary photography of Jewish life in pre-Holocaust Europe. Yet, his body of work extends far beyond the shtetl. New York’s International Center of Photography is home to the Roman Vishniac archive, which traces his career from 1920s Berlin to post-War America. 

In this segment, Beyond the Pale member Eve Sicular interviews ICP adjunct curator Maya Benton, who oversees the Vishniac archive. The Vishniac exhibition at ICP runs through May 5th in New York.
