The Galleries’ first solo exhibition presents photographs by Sonia Handelman Meyer, who captured images at a crucial time in American history. The Great Depression was over and soldiers were returning from victories in World War II, but many people were still hungry, jobless, and homeless. As a member of the New York Photo League, Meyer brought awareness to the plight of immigrants, minorities, and the poor as she photographed the city in the 1940s. Her amazing eye and unimposing persona allowed Meyer to take pictures that pull the viewer in and give us a better understanding of the social, political, and personal struggles of the period, which we are still dealing with today.
