I just finished watching “Ordinary Miracles: The Photo League’s New York,” a documentary about an organized group of photo enthusiasts in New York City during the 30s and 40s and their influence and lasting impact on documentary photography.
One memorable quote from the film, by W. Eugene Smith, their president for a time:
“Photography is a small voice, but sometimes one photograph can lure our senses into awareness. Each time it does, the men and women of The Photo League will be remembered and honored, for that small voice holds to potential to remake the world.”
A link to the film’s website is here. If you get a chance to see it, please do, you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.
