More on the Photo League . . Daniel Allentuck and Nina Rosenblum have produced a film on the Photo League, entitled "Ordinary Miracles: The Photo League's New York". A "sneak preview" is scheduled for Thu. March 29, 8pm, at IFC Center in NYC (downtown). From the post: (http://www.ifccenter.com/films/ordinary-miracles-the-photo-leagues-new-york/) The film combines interviews with a dozen surviving League members with a spellbinding musical score. Campbell Scott’s superb narration and 350 unforgettable images paint a unique and unexpected portrait of New York City from the 1939 World’s Fair to Be-Bop and Abstract Expressionism. Those who made it to the show (still there today, I think) may have seen a short excerpt from this fine film which was looping in a room near the exit. The interviews are particularly fascinating!

Mike . . I have the book and it's excellent as such things go, about 250 pages, well printed and laid out, with some very interesting essays. Mitch
Thanks for this post, Mike. The Photo League show (Jewish Museum, NYC) closes this weekend, and is well worth the visit! It has much of Sid Grossman's work, as discussed in the referenced piece by David Gonzalez. The show will go on to Columbus, OH. There's also a fine catalog, available through Amazon as well as at the show. Gonzalez quotes David Vestal saying that he started teaching to fill the hole left in the world by Grossman's passing.
