A Visit to the Borscht Belt with Marisa Scheinfeld


Monday, March 2, 2015
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm


Photographer Marisa Scheinfeld has been documenting the dramatic degradation of some of the most famous Borscht Belt hotels. The images reveal ghostly remnants of the glory years of the era, as well as powerful evidence of nature’s claim on the resorts and their landscapes, and new uses to which the spaces have been put in recent years. Scheinfeld, who grew up in the region, began her documentary photo project in 2009.

At the Color Camera Club of Westchester Marisa will present selections from the series which contains over 80 photographs, including a re-photographic series of “now” and “then” imagery composed by using found postcards and creating a mirror image of their present day depictions.
