    Roman Vishniac photographed his young bride during their honeymoon in Latvia, where they spent several weeks recovering from an arduous journey from Russia to Riga, before the couple moved to Berlin. Shot on hand-cut film with a Russian camera, these images are among Vishniac’s earliest known photographs and establish his skill as an amateur photographer prior to his arrival in Berlin.
