Masters of Photography: The Garner Collection, November 14, 2020

Sid Grossman was co-founder of the Photo League, a group whose goal was to ā€œput the camera back into the hands of honest photographersā€ and advocate social change. During his travels through areas affected by the Dust Bowl, Grossman created a body of work to describe the local conditions of life. As anti-communist sentiments grew in the later 1940s, Grossmanā€™s sympathetic images of the working class and labor unions from this series would lead to his being blacklisted by the government.
