International award-winning photographer Chuck Fishman has been involved in Polish Jewish life for more than 40 years. His first monograph, Polish Jews: The Final Chapter, was published in 1977 in the United States. His photographs have appeared on the covers of Time, Life, Fortune, Newsweek, The London Sunday Times and The Economist. His work is included in the collections of the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery; the United Nations; POLIN: The Museum of the History of Polish Jews; and The Studio Museum in Harlem. He has earned prestigious World Press Photo Foundation medals four times. We are thrilled and honored to be able to present each week one of Chuck’s iconic photos of Polish Jewish life.
Enjoy.
