EXHIBITION: CHUCK FISHMAN: ROOTS, RESILIENCE AND RENEWAL – A PORTRAIT OF POLISH JEWS, 1975-2016 Jointly organized with Jewish Studies at Fordham University, this exhibition includes 36 black and white photographs made during multiple trips Chuck Fishman took to Poland over a period of more than 40 years, first as a young college student and later as a professional photojournalist. Returning several times between 1975 and 1983, Fishman's images provide rare glimpses into Jewish life during a period when Jews in the West had little or no access to their Polish forebears in the post-Holocaust era. His more recent images—made after returning to postCommunist Poland for the first time in 30 years in 2013—chronicle a spiritual and cultural return to identity that Fishman says, "would have been unthinkable before."
