‘ORDINARY MIRACLES: THE PHOTO LEAGUE’S NEW YORK’ tells the story of the rise and politically motivated fall of the Photo League (1936-1951) which for fifteen years functioned as the center of the documentary movement in American photography…
“The Photo League students take their camera anywhere… they want to tell us about New York and some of the people who live there… there was almost a sense of desperation in the desire to convey messages of sociological import.”
— Beaumont Newhall, 1948
