Judy Glickman Lauder Biography


Judith Glickman Lauder, whose career began in the 1970s, is best known for black-and-white images relating to the Holocaust over several decades, and the exhibition will also include a selection. In addition, her work from travels to Cuba in 2003 will also be on view. Her photography, which has been exhibited extensively at over 150 major museums and galleries, will be seen this fall in the Jewish Museum’s Masterpieces & Curiosities: Theresienstadt Bracelet exhibition. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay area, much of Glickman Lauder’s childhood was spent in front of her father’s large Graflex camera. Dr. Irving Bennett Ellis was an early California pictorialist photographer, a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, and the recipient of many photographic awards. As a young girl, Glickman Lauder met other photographers, among the most notable of whom were Edward Weston and Ansel Adams.

Glickman Lauder has been exhibiting her work extensively since the late 1970s. In 1993, Glickman received the Fellowship distinction of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain, the highest honor this prestigious organization bestows. Her work is represented in over 300 private collections nationally and internationally including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art; The Jewish Museum, New York; J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles; Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust; United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Washington, D.C.; Denver Art Museum; Houston Museum of Fine Arts; and The Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
