From Israel with Love!
Liselotte Grschebina's amazing and groundbreaking photography form the early 20th century was almost lost forever, packed in boxes and gathering dust in her son's Tel Aviv apartment and almost thrown in the garbage (the negatives actually were discarded!).
What a discovery! Coming a few years after the artist's death, we now have a beautiful window into life in Liselotte's native Germany in the 1920s and her new home in the Land of Israel in the 1930s and 40s, as well as the development of photography as a serious and independant art form.
Her views of the architecture, athletics, immigration, culture, and industry of pre-State Israel have become an indespensible part of our history.
