Sid Grossman (b. 1913, New York; d. 1955, Provincetown, Massachusetts) was a founding member of the Photo League, a group of primarily Jewish photographers active in New York who used their medium to shed light on issues of social inequality in the urban environment. Grossman created humanizing and intimate documentary portraits of everyday people on the street and experimented with more artful, stylized image making as well. Drawing from PAMMs collection, this exhibition presents a series of photographs of New Yorkspecifically the Lower East Sidedepicting street scenes, tenements and architecture, and daily life.
