This exhibition features 75
photographs of Holocaust survivors created to mark the
75th anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz. Photographer Martin
Schoeller’s striking and honest portraits will be on view alongside a
short film documenting the process, as well as biographies of and quotes
from the sitters.
Martin Schoeller (b. 1968, Germany)
is one of the world’s most prominent contemporary portrait photographers.
His signature style of extreme close-up portraiture has been
utilized across his career, whether his subject is a celebrity or a
Holocaust survivor, encouraging the viewer to draw comparisons “between
his subjects, challenging a viewer’s existing notions of celebrity,
value, and honesty.” Here, a community takes shape from individual
here or on the image above to learn about Shmuel Stern
and the set of tefillin that he found, traded for, hid, and shared
while at the Buchenwald concentration camp.
