The Photographers’ Gallery

The Photographers’ Gallery was founded in London in 1971 as the first public gallery in the UK dedicated to the medium, and remains a leader in the presentation and exploration of photography in all its forms. It has been instrumental in promoting photography’s influential role in culture and society and ensuring its position as a significant art form. SRT’s grant supports an exhibition of work by the Russian-American photographer Roman Vishniac (1897-1990), who was known for his documentation of impoverished Jewish communities in Central and Eastern Europe between the two World Wars.
