Camera Work of British Jews Seen at Exhibit

Download PDF for this date

The twenty-fifth annual exhibition of the London Salon of Photography, now being held at the Galleries of the Royal Society of Painters, contains a large number of entries by Anglo-Jewish photographers, both professional and amateur.

Entries to the exhibition are restricted to pictorial photography containing distinct evidence of personal artistic feeling and expression.

Charles H. L. Emanuel, attorney for the Board of Deputies of British Jews, has two studies in the exhibition, “The River Front” and “Evening.”

“Disarmament,” by E. Heimann, is a clever photo-cartoon suggesting a mordant wit. “Herman Darewski” by W. Foster Brigham is an original and striking portrait of the ramous Jewish composer. “Rusian Lady,” the work of P. Snyder, is, as usual, a study in sorrow. An expression of the fine pioneering spirit of the Chalutzim in Palestine is to be found in “Unto the Hills” by E. Johnson Taylor. “Boy in the Temple,” by H. W. Isaacs, is an unusual study of the use of a shaft of light in a marrow court-way.

Other entries by Jewish photographers include, “Sun Worshippers” by Agnes Warburg; “Gala Evening at the Scaia, Milan,” by Alfred Eisenstadt; “Bridge on the Rhone,” by R. H. Klein, and “Glass Bowls” by S. Grierson.
