“The exhibition, in the tradition of the artist-made museum a la David Wilson and the Museum of Jurassic Technology, is a tribute to Shimmel Zohar, a nineteenth-century Jewish immigrant and photographer who founded the enigmatic Zohar Studios in New York City. The images, featuring a wide range of dreamers, eccentrics, and malcontents, embellish upon the conventions of Victorian studio photography. They are really quite marvelous and strange.”
