Opening Reception: Voices from the Photo League
January 17, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Both Meyer and Gilbert were members of the illustrious Photo League (1936-1951) in New York during the 1940s. They focused their lenses on the city’s lively street life, neighborhoods, and citizens, creating photographs that convey their sensitivity to broader, humanitarian issues. This exhibition offers a unique opportunity to learn about social documentary and its place in the politics of the post-war era through the eyes of two talented witnesses.
