A splendid presentation of 410 images made between 1935 and 1943 by photographers employed by the Farm Security Administration, among them: Ben Shahn, Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, and Arthur Rothstein. Differing from the FSA's better known images of rural life and poverty, these photos (selected from an archive of 145,000 photos) depict everyday life in large cities and small towns throughout the US and Puerto Rico. Lesy (literary journalism, Hampshire College) sets the political, social, and artistic contexts with explanatory text, including primary and secondary sources (some given as assigned reading to the photographers), as well as a look at Roy Stryker, the FSA's controversial director. The oversize (11.25x10") format affords full-page reproduction of these evocative images, which constitute an American treasure.
