Changing the World, One Picture at a Time

Group Description

Official Flickr Group for The Philadelphia Photo League.

The Philadelphia Photo league was established to emulate the historic New York Photo League, which was - unfortunately - destroyed during the "red scare" of the 1950's, by the cold-war "witch hunts" of the time.

The Photo League was a cooperative of amateur and professional photographers who banded together around a range of common social and creative causes. The League was active from 1936 to 1951 and included among its members some of the most noted American Photographers of the mid-20th century.

Our mission is to try recreate this unique environment, where all types of photographers, using all types of media, can gather together to share knowledge, ideas and inspiration - plus enjoy a sense of community, while fostering positive change in our world.

We are actively seeking members, especially those who are eager to become members of our Leadership Team, in order to actively contribute to its growth and influence.

If you are a devotee of documentary photography, and committed to social causes, please consider joining today at

This group is now moderated (that is, photos will be screened before appearing in the pool) and the submission limit has been reduced to 4 images per day. Our goal is to showcase quality images that are representational of the Philly area and/or the art of photography.

*The images in this Flickr group will appear simultaneously on the Philadelphia Photo League's blog site, so please post your best work.

Thanks, and please feel free to post news or start a discussion on the group’s home page.
