Description

An exhibition of 110 photographs by both unknown and relatively well-known photographers who contrasted the social deprivation of the working class of the time with the untroubled existence of the elite as depicted by the press during the Weimar Republic. Leah Ollman was the guest curator for Camera as Weapon, which was organized by the Museum of Photographic Arts, San Diego, and funded in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
