PHOTOS BY DANIEL COSTON PHOTOGRAPHY
Famous photographer Sonia Handelman Meyer, 99, was the guest of honor at an exhibition at the Light Factory that focused on The Photo League (1936–1951). This cooperative in New York City run by amateur and professional photographers was dedicated to the medium they loved. Both artists featured in this exhibition, Sonia Handelman Meyer and George Gilbert, were devoted members active in the League throughout the 1940s. They focused their lenses on the city’s street life, neighborhoods, and citizens, creating photographs that are a social documentary of the post-war era.
