New York in black and white: portraits of everyday life in the city from 1936-1951

Portraits of everyday life drawn from the streets of America's biggest city form the heart of a new exhibit opening at The Jewish Museum in New York. "The Radical Camera: New York's Photo League, 1936-1951," recognises the importance of the League - a group of photographers who saw documentary photography as both an art form and a way to argue for social justice. The League was active for 15 years, from 1936 to 1951, and included among its members and supporters well-known photographers such as Weegee, Sid Grossman, Richard Avedon, Ansel Adams and Margaret Bourke-White.
