Moses Vorobeichic (Moi Ver) first studied painting in Vilnius, and then went to the Bauhaus in Dessau in 1927, where he studied with Paul Klee and Wassily Kandinsky, among others. It was there that he first became involved with photography. Later he went to the Ecole de photo et du cinéma in Paris. His first major project was a study of Vilnius, which he showed in the form of photo collages in an exhibition at the Zionist Congress in Zurich in 1929 and published as a book in 1931 with the support of Emil Schaeffer, editor of the Schaubuch series. The book, Ein Ghetto im Osten - Wilna, was published in six bilingual versions (Hebrew-Yiddish; Hebrew-English; Hebrew-German; Yiddish-German; English-German) with a total circulation of 12,500 copies. Moi Ver showed the life of the orthodox Jews of his hometown at the time of Passover in 1929 in a modern form. – In good to very good condition.
