Cofounder of the Photo League, the New York–based, left-leaning organization that championed both photography and the working man, Sid Grossman used his camera as a tool to illuminate union struggles, rural poverty, and life in Harlem. Equally, however, in the late 1940s, he captured the unfettered delight of ordinary New Yorkers at Little Italy’s San Gennaro festival or, as in this joyous jumble of bodies, soaking in the sun and sociability of Coney Island’s beach and boardwalk.
