Over an eight-year period, photographer and author Penny Wolin embarked upon multiple road trips throughout America, photographing and interviewing more than 70 leading Jewish photographers. From Alfred Stieglitz to Robert Frank; Helen Levitt to Annie Leibovitz, this stunning body of work assembles her own original portraits of each subject, interviews from each session, ancestral photographs collected from each photographer, and an iconic example of each artist's work. This 244 page, 235 photograph finely printed volume is a must-have reference of the art of photography, through the two centuries to the present.

About the Author:
 
Penny Wolin’s previous visual and verbal journey into American Jewish identity is her seminal book and exhibition, The Jews of Wyoming: Fringe of the Diaspora, as published by Crazy Woman Creek Press and exhibited solo at the Smithsonian Institution. Both volumes are considered unique contributions to our understanding of the American mosaic of Jewish culture. Wolin received her undergraduate degree from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, studied visual anthropology in the graduate program at the University of California, Los Angeles, and was awarded a directing fellowship to the American Film Institute, Los Angeles. Her client list includes such magazines as Vanity Fair, Esquire, LIFE and Conde-Nast Traveler, as well as The Disney Corporation, Peter Michael Winery, Charles Schulz Museum and UCLA Medical Center. She divides her time among the north and south of California and New York.
