There Was a Forest:
Jewish Life in Eastern Europe Today, 2005-2008

Limited-Edition Artist's Book
by Loli Kantor



"Memory and hope are visible in the moving and surprising scenes of daily life among the revived Jewish communities of Poland and Ukraine. The palladium prints echo the indelible images of Roman Vishniac and others whose recording of the shtetl and its inhabitants in the 1930s proved to be the final snapshots of a doomed life."
