Chana Leah Schpinna, Russian-Jewish Immigrant

Just finished an intensive two-day workshop on wet-collodion photography,taught by photographer Lisa Elmaleh, at the Center for Alternative Photography. This experience has definitely changed the way I think about writing on photography. I’ll devote more writing to this later, but for now here is a self-portrait ambrotype entitled “Chana Leah Schpinna, Russian-Jewish Immigrant:”

    My daughter, when she was 2, used to talk endlessly of a Jewish woman named Chana, who wore a headscarf. Now I’m fascinated about learning the history of Chana!
