Portraits in Black and White:
Survivors and What They Carry


Portraits in Black and White: Survivors and What They Carry, photographer Barbara Mack's powerful portraits of Holocaust Survivors, returns for an encore exhibit at LAMOTH on June 12, 2016.

Survivors and What They Carry captures the essence of these remarkable people, many of whom pose with an object from their past. Cherished objects and family heirlooms -- a faded photo, a kiddush cup, a violin -- add powerful and evocative layers to these stunning images. The black and white portraits are accompanied by fascinating life stories. 

The exhibit is accompanied by two books, Portraits in Black and White: Holocaust Survivors of Café Europa, volume I (photography by Barbara Mack and text by Jane Jelenko) and volume II (photography by Barbara Mack and text by Barbara Mack and Pamela Wick). The first volume is a 2012 Premier Print Awards Best of Category winner. SEE SIDEBAR FOR ORDERING INFORMATION.

The show is the culmination of Barbara Mack's seven-year collaboration with Holocaust survivors from Café Europa, a club sponsored by Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles that invites survivors to meet weekly to build supportive relationships and participate in social and educational activities including trips, holiday celebrations, and entertainment.

After being exhibited at LAMOTH in 2015, the show traveled to Washington, DC, in May, where it was exhibited at the Russell Senate Rotunda for the annual Days of Remembrance. Most recently, it was exhibited in Sacramento for the California State Legislature’s Holocaust Memorial Project.
