Alice Gregory argues today in Tablet Magazine that a Jewish Museum show of the Communist-inflected New York Photo League displays the moral conflict of a propagandistic style that frames subjects with a political agenda in mind. Sabine Heinlein’s review of two new biographies of the great Jewish photographer Diane Arbus reveals the pitfalls of using the photographer’s work to gain insight into the photographer’s mind. Both essays challenge the way photography is artistically, well, viewed.
