My NYC To Do List – Item #3: View the Radical Camera exhibit

My knowledge of art is as limited as it could possibly be. But that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate it. I do, particularly photography.

Diane Arbus? Absolutely. Mapplethorpe? Yes, please. I don’t generally like Pretty Pictures. I seek out photos that make me think, or shake me up. Photos that defy easy understanding, but which are compelling enough to keep me looking and thinking.

As a result, this exhibit at The Jewish Museum seems like a must do: The Radical Camera: New York’s Photo League, 1936-1951. I read about it in Time Magazine (yes, the paper kind!) and I have until late March to go.
