The View from Left Field was an exhibition of 78 pictures from the photo morgue of The Daily Worker, the official newspaper of the American Communist Party, whose archive was acquired in 2006 by NYU's Tamiment Library. The exhibition was a collaboration between Professor Shelley Rice of the Department of Photography & Imaging of the Tisch School of the Arts and the Department of Art History in the College of Arts and Sciences and the late Michael Nash of the Tamiment Library. Photography & Imaging undergraduate Jonno Rattman '13 and Photography & Imaging Technical Director Karl Peterson were also key collaborators. This project was supported in part by a grant from the New York University Visual Arts Initiative.
