Photo Exhibit, photography

March 4 @ 8:00 am - March 15 @ 5:00 pm

CES Exhibition. Camera as Passport: The Ship of Photographers
Curators: Deborah Dash Moore, Frederick G. L. Huetwell, Professor of History and Professor of Judaic studies, U-M; and Louis Kaplan, Professor of History and Theory of Photography and New Media, University of Toronto.
This exhibit introduces the University of Michigan to this intrepid group as exemplary case studies of the wide range of European photographers who used their cameras as passports to other worlds. It focuses first on their European experiences pre-emigration before turning to their escape from Europe on the S. S. Winnipeg (with three of them taking photos on board the ship). The exhibit concludes with examples of some of their initial photographic reactions to the new world, seeing it through European eyes.
