    Re: The Uncanny Tale of Shimmel Zohar

    This reminds me of when I watched the "Game of Thrones" series in its entirety. Know what I found out later? THE WHOLE THING WAS FAKE! It never even happened! Just a bunch of professional actors pretending to be someone else. What a hoax...

    Yeah, Mark, fiction presented as fiction, not fiction presented as fact.

    Judicial malpractice?

    The interesting thing is that the Contemporary Jewish Museum presented Berkman's work honestly:

    Los Angeles-based artist Stephen Berkman’s immersive photography installation is a tribute to Shimmel Zohar, a mythical nineteenth-century Jewish immigrant photographer, founder of Zohar Studios. The exhibition includes over thirty photographs, several large installations, a cabinet of curiosities, and a large format artist book about the Zohar project. These uncanny photographs take the visual codes of nineteenth-century portraiture as their point of departure, and the images and objects address both Jewish life and the scientific state of understanding over one hundred years ago. Together, they create an idiosyncratic vision of Victorian life in the United States, revitalizing bygone technologies and themes within a twenty-first century context. Through his work, Berkman shows that history is malleable and contains a multiplicity of meanings.
    As for photographing fairies, I take it that Mark channels Elsie Wright and Frances Griffiths.

    And Mr Weschler's job is to boost readership of a non-news story by any means necessary.
    Lucky for him, he had such rich subject matter to start with.

    Best photographers ever! And even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, pronounced their fairy photographs as authentic, so they must be real!
