Photo League photographer
- How can you capture the essence of your community in a photograph?
- What story does your photograph tell about your neighborhood and the people who live there?
In conjunction with the exhibition, The Radical Camera: New York's Photo League, 1936-1951, the Education Department invites high school students to submit original photographs which document the people, places and stories that represent and distinguish their communities, both inside and out of New York City.
