A new photographic community is starting in the Philadelphia area. Fans of the original NYC Photo League, who are based in this area, should definitely check it out.

From the website...

This group is being established to emulate the historic New York Photo League, which was - unfortunately - destroyed during the "red scare" of the 1950's, by the cold-war "witch hunts" of the time.

The Photo League was a cooperative of amateur and professional photographers who banded together around a range of common social and creative causes. The League was active from 1936 to 1951 and included among its members some of the most noted American Photographers of the mid-20th century.

Our mission is to recreate this unique environment, where all types of photographers, using all types of media, can gather together to share knowledge, ideas and inspiration - plus enjoy a sense of community, while fostering positive change in our world.

If you are a devotee of documentary or street photography, and committed to social causes, please consider joining today
