"The Ruins of the Borscht Belt" Photography Viewing with the Artist

Marisa Scheinfeld's current photo exhibit "The Ruins of the Borscht Belt" has been featured in the NY Times, and in an August 7 article in The Jewish Week "Brokedown Palace: Young photographer drawn to Catskills’ ruins and relics, and to Elul’s existential questions" by Jonathan Mark.

Marissa Scheinfeld has taken frequent trips back to her hometown region of Sullivan Country to photograph the remains of the Borscht Belt era. The surreal images depict the relics of a bygone and truly cherished time in American-Jewish history - the infamous Catskill resorts. 

Exhibit at LESJC Kling & Niman Family Visitor Center
400 Grand Street (between Clinton & Suffolk Streets), New York, NY. 

Scheinfeld's photographic projects and books are in the collections of The Simon Wiesenthal Center in CA, The La Jolla Athenaeum in CA, The Edmund and Nancy K. Dubois Library at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, and The International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation.
