Book Talk—Walkers in the City: Jewish Street Photographers of Midcentury New York

September 28, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Program Fee:

In partnership with the American Jewish Historical Society and YIVO

Drawing on the experiences of and photographs by a generation of young Jewish photographers who belonged to the New York Photo League, Deborah Dash Moore offers a new perspective on New York as seen through their eyes—a cityscape of working-class people and democratizing public transit. With their cameras, they pictured Gotham’s abrasive social milieu and its evanescent textures and light, creating an archive of vernacular images of city life and a distinctive tradition of street photography that would be widely imitated.
