About Us


The original NYC Photo League was a cooperative of amateur and professional photographers who banded together around a range of common social and creative causes. The League was active from 1936 to 1951 and included among its members some of the most noted American Photographers of the mid-20th century.

Our mission is to recreate this unique environment, where all types of serious photographers, using all types of media, can gather together to share knowledge, ideas and inspiration – plus enjoy a sense of community, while fostering positive change in our world.

If you are a devotee of documentary or street photography, and committed to social causes, please consider joining today.
