In 1936 a group of young, idealistic photographers, most of themJewish, first-generation Americans, formed an organization inManhattan called the Photo League. Their solidarity centered on abelief in the expressive power of the documentary photograph and ona progressive alliance in the 1930s of socialist ideas and art.Members rejected the prevailing style of modernism in order toengage the gritty realities of urban life. Leaguers focused on NewYork, and this meant looking closely at ordinary people.

Featuring works by celebrated League photographers, includingBerenice Abbott, Sid Grossman, Lisette Model, and Weegee, TheRadical Camera: New York's Photo League, 1936-1951 takes anin-depth look at the League's accomplishments from the end of theGreat Depression to the start of the Cold War. By its demise in1951, the League had propelled documentary photography from factualimages to more challenging ones--from bearing witness toquestioning one’s own bearings in the world.
