Overview

From 1936 to 1951, the Photo League served as a darkroom, school, gallery, and social hall for many of New York City's most notable photographers, including Berenice Abbott, Sid Grossman, Lisette Model, Aaron Siskind, Paul Strand, and Weegee. The League encouraged its members to use photography to express their support of progressive social causes. The pictures they took, from Harlem to the Lower East Side to Coney Island, are now among the most iconic images of New York. Blacklisted in 1947 as an alleged Communist front, the Photo League was forced to disband soon after.
 
This book of postcards includes thirty photographs from the exhibition The Radical Camera: New Yorks Photo League 1936-1951.
