Penny Wolin spent eight years traveling throughout America photographing and interviewing more than 70 of the most original American photographers in history including Annie Leibovitz, Arnold Newman, Robert Frank, and relatives of deceased artists. She will present the lives and amazing works of photographers who documented Presidents, Architecture, Celebrities, American Landmarks, Jewish History and Artists. Wolin is a portrait photographer and a visual anthropologist who combines history, words and images. She recently published “Descendants of Light: American Photographers of Jewish Ancestry” featuring the lives of Jewish photographers, fostering a renewed appreciation for these witnesses to our common history and culture.
“If you have wondered why the most notable photographers in 20th century America were Jewish, come to this talk. - Former picture editor, LIFE Magazine
