Lecturer: Michal Minsky
The PhotoHouse began as one of the small photography shops scattered along Allenby Street in Tel Aviv, and over the years became one of the most well-known photography shops in the country, through which tens of thousands of photographers passed and milestones in local history were burned in the negatives and archive binders. On this talk we will get to know the founders of the place, Rudi and Miriam Wiessenstein, and will discover how Rudi managed to become from an anonymous photographer to the documenter of the declaration of independence of the state of Israel, and the photographer of the most famous Israeli politicians, actors and artists.
We will talk about famous photographs, anecdotes behind pictures, the challenges of maintaining a private collection of photographs of national importance, and will be moved by the amazing survival story of the small family shop of more than 80 years.
Join us for an hour of nostalgia, memories and exciting moments in black and white.
