You have only two more weeks to see the “Photo League” photography show at the Jewish Museum, entitled “Radical Camera.”  As WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, the League was not just a convenient place to meet other photographers. The “Photo League” was organized around a way of looking at the world. Here is the next Fishko Files.

"The Radical Camera: New York's Photo League" at The Jewish Museum closes on Sunday, March 25th. For more information, visit the museum's website.
