FSA by Beverly Brannan

Book Description

Between the World Wars, America's Great Depression spawned the need for many public works agencies, in particular the Farm Security Administration. Director Roy Stryker was invited by the Roosevelt administration to assemble a team of photographers, which included Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Arthur Rothstein, Jack Delano and Gordon Parks, to document America's cultural and economic conditions. Although the archives are often consulted for a few nostalgic images, they have never been comprehensively anthologised. "FSA: The American Vision" gathers, for the first time, the FSA's catalogue of documentary photography - a collection of images so extraordinary that they set the standard for photojournalism for years afterward.
