Most were New Yorkers born between 1900 and 1925, the majority were Jewish, and few were women. No one was well-off, and many were first generation Americans with only public educations.Despite outside pressures and limitations, the photographers forged ahead in a peculiarly American fashion, improvising when necessary, and educating and assisting one another.
