The Science of Photography: Jewish Pathways on Wednesday 14th November 2018

Discover the Jewish inventors who transformed photography in the 20th century. Professor Michael Berkowitz will explore the particular historical circumstances that allowed and encouraged these Jewish innovators to challenge photographic conventions.

This presentation, complementing Vishniac’s scientific dimension, addresses the Jewish engagement with photographic technologies. Among those to be featured are Gabriel Lippmann, a French pioneer in colour photography; Nahum Luboshez, responsible for huge advances in radiography; Leopold Mannes and Leopold Godowsky, Jr., the co-inventors of Kodachrome; and Edwin Land, founder of Polaroid.
