An effective example of that craft/art mind meld is a series of prints at the Florida Holocaust Museum, 55 Fifth St. S, St. Petersburg, in which he superimposes Hebrew text over vintage Holocaust photographs. It's not a new idea; still original is Mendelsberg's use of the Hebrew characters in a dramatic way that, even if you don't read Hebrew, contributes to the photographs' narratives. The font he uses is of his own design, called Torah, and it is beautiful. Shown is Blue Child. The exhibition "Holocaust Portfolio" continues through Feb. 1.
