Displaced Visions looks at the work and influence of key figures in modernist photography from the point of view of their status as immigrants, exploring how this experience affected their vision and creativity, while enriching the development of their "photographic language." Photographers such as Bill Brandt, Brassaï, André Kertész, and Man Ray, among many others, who in the first half of the 20th century left their native countries and became observers and interpreters of completely new surroundings.
This large-format publication includes the essay "A Century of Migration" by former Israel Museum Senior Curator of Photography Nissan N. Perez, an informative biographical index of immigrant photographers, and an arresting 200-page album of works.
