The Radical Camera at the Jewish Museum

The Radical Camera: New York's photo League, 1936-1951
November 04, 2011-March 25, 2012

I'm going this week, expect to be inspired. Curated by Mason Klein from The Jewish Museum, New York and Catherine Evans from the Museum of Art, Ohio

"In 1936 a group of young, idealistic photographers, most of them Jewish, first-generation Americans, formed an organization in Manhattan called the Photo League. Their solidarity centered on a belief in the expressive power of the documentary photograph and on a progressive alliance in the 1930s of socialist ideas and art. The Radical Camera presents the contested path of the documentary photograph during a tumultuous period that spanned the New Deal reforms of the Depression, World War II, and the Cold War." -The Jewish Museum
