Shout Freedom! Photo League Selections from the Columbus Museum of Art comprises fifty-five photographs by forty-seven photographers who were active in the Photo League, including Berenice Abbott, Sid Grossman, Lisette Model, W. Eugene Smith, Aaron Siskind, and Weegee. The Photo League chronicled turbulent chapters in our history – from the Great Depression to the World War II to the Cold War.
