Ronnie Setter, Berlin "Once-upon-a-time"
Etched transparency in illuminated light box with three-dimensional figures
After the defeat of Germany in World War I, it had been hoped that a period of peace would follow. WW1 was to be the "war to end wars" but what followed instead was a punishing peace forced on Germany that eventually contributed to the rise of a dangerous nationalism. Meanwhile, the liberal Weimar Republic was founded and in the arts, various creative movements thrived: perhaps Bauhaus, which strived for a marriage of simple form and function as the most appropriate aesthetic for a world that was being rapidly industrialized, was the most enduring of these movements. Bauhaus had its effect on all the arts of the period, photography among them. The arts flourished despite a difficult economic environment that rapidly worsened. As the Weimar Republic collapsed, Hitler and the National Socialists gained power in stages and as Ruth Bernhard stated simply, "Germany was developing into a dictatorship." Though not Jewish, her Father had already left Berlin for New York and she joined him in 1927 - as she said, only then did she absorb the Bauhaus aesthetic
Tim Gidal, one of Germany's first photojournalists, was prescient enough to know when to leave. In British ruled Palestine, he photographed the rising Jewish state. Arnold Eagle was born and raised in Hungary and immigrated to the U.S. in 1929. In the mid-'30s he began photographing Manhattan's Orthodox Jews. He was terrified thinking these people were the last Jewish people left in the world.
Every photographer included in this exhibition tells a story. They all left Europe about the same time; each took a different direction in their work.

Magical and beautiful works with themes of memory, nature and timelessness.
