The
Photographic Studios
of Eastern Europe

The "Photographic Studios of Eastern Europe" exhibition was created in order to acquaint those interested in photography with its early history, technically as well as commercially. A brief history of photography will be presented, as will a discussion of various aspects of  the photographic studio and family portrait. The exhibition will refer to, for the most part, those studios that were once located within the former Russian Empire. Also, the lives and careers of two photographers are presented- one whose studio once stood in the city of Vilnius, Lithuania, the other in Mariupol, Ukraine - through a series of descriptive, pictorial displays and historical perspectives.

The exhibition has been made possible by the many generous members of the public, especially the Jewish genealogical community, who have visited the Museum and found value in its work.
