Series 8: Photographs , 1898-1973
(Boxes 5-6, 8; 1.05 linear ft.; Reel 5899)

Images of Lozowick include a photograph of him as a young child, along with pictures of his father, wife Adele and son Lee, and a portrait thought to be of David Burliuk. Of particular interest is a photograph of Lozowick participating in a demonstration organized by the John Reed Club and Artists' Union, 1934.
Photographs of works of art consist of drawings, lithographs, paintings, machine ornaments, set designs, and a costume by Lozowick. Also included is work by various American, European, and Russian artists. Negatives (both acetate and glass) and lantern slides of works of art were most likely used to illustrate writings and lectures.
Miscellaneous subjects include Lozowick's studio, the Soviet Pavilion at the 1939 World's Fair in New York, and an unidentified Soviet exhibition installation.
A few photographs are among the illustrations of artists at work, in their studios, galleries, etc., filed with Series 6, Printed Material.
Lantern slides have not been scanned. Glass plate negatives and lantern slides are housed separately.
