GALLERY: “Ruth Gruber, Photojournalist” Art Exhibition @ U-M Ann Arbor

"Eklutna woman reading LIFE magazine, Hooper Bay, Alaska Territory, 1941-43" by Ruth Gruber

“Ruth Gruber, Photojournalist” celebrates the remarkable life, vision, and heroic tenacity of a 20th-century pioneer and trailblazer. Once the world’s youngest Ph.D., Ruth Gruber died in November of 2016 at the age of 105. The photographs in this exhibition span more than 50 years, from her groundbreaking reportage of the Soviet Arctic in the 1930s and iconic images of Jewish refugees from the ship Exodus 1947, to her later photographs of Ethiopian Jews in the midst of civil war in the 1980s. A selection of Gruber’s vintage prints, never before exhibited, will be presented alongside contemporary prints made from her original negatives.
