Ruth Jacobi: Photographs

Exhibition Catalog

Published here for the first time, Ruth Jacob’s recently rediscovered works not only bear witness to an age of major innovations in photography, but also to the photographer's intuition and her "ability to read people's faces."
Ruth Jacobi's memories describing her family's history can be found alongside the photographs, painting a very personal picture of the photographer, as sensitive as she was emancipated.
