Roman Vishniac Archive Internship

The Roman Vishniac Archive at the International Center of Photography

We are looking for students in the Jewish Studies and/or Art History Departments to intern for the Roman Vishniac archive at the International Center of Photography. Working with researcher and curator, Maya Benton, we are creating a comprehensive archive of photographer Roman VishniacÂ’s entire body of work, including negatives, contact sheets, and thousands of unpublished prints, as well as personal correspondences and ephemera. The second stage of this project is a large-scale, traveling retrospective, including a catalogue, symposia, and educational programming, scheduled to open at ICP in 2012.

A desirable candidate should have an interest in archival work and photography. We are also looking for an intern proficient in German who could assist in translating documents and correspondences. We will be training interns to work with photographic archives and Jewish visual culture and are happy to work with the department to grant credit for internships.
