Collection of photographs and negatives from the estate of Helene Bieberkraut (1896-1983). Germany and Palestine, [ca. 1920s-1940s]. Helene Bieberkraut, née Joseph, was born in Cologne, Germany, and studied photography in Munich, where she opened a studio for portraits and architecture photography. In the late 1920s she married the artist James Bieberkraut (born in Leipzig, Germany). In ca. 1936 the couple immigrated to Palestine. Helene opened a photography studio in Tel-Aviv where she continued, among other things, to photograph portraits. Later on, when she moved with her husband to Jerusalem, she started photographing archaeological excavations, archaeological findings and ancient manuscripts. Among others, she photographed the Dead Sea Scrolls (her husband, James, was the one who opened the Genesis Apocryphon). The collection includes: • Photographs by Bieberkraut, from Germany and Palestine (signed with ink-stamps or by hand), including portrait photographs taken in Munich, a group photograph at the entrance to the Montefiori high school in Tel Aviv, interior of a synagogue in Ramat-Gan, and more. • Album with seventeen photographs by Bieberkraut depicting architectural models created by her husband, James, including models of a synagogue in Hadera and of "Habima" theater. Some photographs are titled by hand on the album's leaves. • Album with nine photographs by Bieberkraut portraying various buildings in Tel-Aviv and Ramat-Gan, interior and exterior, (among them: Feuchtwanger Bank, construction site on Hayarkon Street, synagogue in Ramat-Gan, and more). • About 300 negatives (some arranged in designated albums. Some printed on transparencies), including negatives of photographs from various locations in Palestine: Jerusalem and the vicinity (Dome of the Rock, Old City streets, Rachel's Tomb, and more), Tiberias, Safed, Nablus, and other locations. Most were probably taken in the 1920s or early 1930s. • Two booklets (thick paper sheets, folded) with postcards on which are printed photographs of landscapes, flowers and animals, by Bieberkraut. Printed in Germany. • Additional photographs from the estate of Bieberkraut. Total of about 350 items (photo albums, loose photographs, negatives, and more). Size and condition vary. See next item.
