Artist Richard Tuschman Captures 1930s Poland in Detailed Dioramas

Tuschman6

“Once Upon a Time in Kazimierz” is a 17 image series of Richard Tuschman’s highly detailed dioramas. He shoots the models separately and composites them in post (more on his process here). While the Holocaust isn’t addressed directly, the sequence follows the daily routines of a Jewish family living in Krawkow in the 1930s, creating a beautiful mix of dreamy nostalgia and the looming threat of things to come. See more images below.

MoMA Offers Free Online Photography Course

moma

Taking pictures all the time or following all the best Instagram accounts doesn’t necessarily mean you know what you’re doing (or even looking at). Luckily the Museum of Modern Art is here to help! Seeing Through Photographs is the first online course open to the general public en masse.

Drawing on content from MoMA’s own collection, the aim of the course is to bridge the gap between seeing a photograph and actually understanding how it works by exposing participants to various perspectives on what photography is and how it’s used. And not just today but throughout history! The course also makes use of various media: short films, video conversations, and audio slideshows featuring artist interviews. Check out Coursera.org for more information!
