Publisher Comments:

""Into the Light: The Photo League Years " is a collection of black-and-white photographs by Sonia Handelman Meyer. This collection is based on the catalogue for an exhibit by the same title sponsored by the Hodges Taylor Gallery, September/October 2007 in Charlotte, NC. During the 1940s Sonia Meyer became an active member in the Photo League in New York City. The League offered its members a forum in serious photography, with exhibitions, publications, darkrooms, lectures, and other events. As a photographer, Sonia Meyer dedicated herself to social documentary, taking photographs of local neighborhoods and their citizens with a keen and sympathetic eye for the human condition. Meyers photographs and street scenes of immigrants, minorities, and children, whether in Harlem, the Village, or Brooklyn, accent the resilience and dignity of those facing economic adversity. Her subjects, which are often children, endure, persevere, and survive, despite the odds. Poor children play and laugh; they find spaces of joy. Meyers children of the city exist on their own terms. They are free and lively, as they endeavor to live and grow in the midst of towering tenements and poverty. For an author bio, photo and a sample read, visit bosonbooks.com "
