The Radical Camera: NY’s Photo League | New York Photography 1936-1951 (8 Pictures)

Sehr atmosphärische Aufnahmen unterschiedlichster, teils Amateur- und teils Profi-Fotografen (Credits unten) aus dem Jewish Museum aus New York City, entstanden zwischen 1936 und 1951:

„Apart from the protests and the poverty, the streets themselves also, in some cases, look exactly the same and in others are hard to recognize. It’s truly fascinating to look at every detail of each photo. Add to that, that the Photo League – a group of amateur and professional photographers who were politically progressive, believed in photography as an instrument for social change, and were later blacklisted during the McCarthy Era – leased 2,600 sq. feet of space in our very own building’s basement in the late 1940s as their gathering space, makes it all the more close to home.“
