9780810954977: FSA: The American Vision

The photographs produced by the FSA during the Great Depression constitute one of America’s greatest artistic legacies. The project launched a stellar group of young photographers, including Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Carl Mydans, Arthur Rothstein, Marion Post Walcott, and Gordon Parks, who fanned out across America and created images of intense power and poetry. Thousands of FSA photographs have been exhibited and published, and we may feel that we know them well. For this remarkable volume, however, Gilles Mora and Beverly Brannan immersed themselves in the vast archive at the Library of Congress and emerged with unknown treasures. Theirs is a new view of the achievement of the FSA photographers—the most comprehensive in print—that finally gives them their due as the creators of a new American photographic vision.

Book Description 2006. Couverture rigide. Book Condition: Neuf. Dust Jacket Condition: Neuf. We did better than we thought, did't we. We made a dent in the visual world." Roy Stryker En 1935, la Farm Security Administration (F. S. A.) decide de soutenir une mission photographique qui aura pour but de dresser un bilan sociologique, économique et culturel des États-Unis depuis le début de la Grande Dépression en 1929. Cette mission se poursuivra jusqu'en 1943. De jeunes photographes parcourront tous les états, des grandes villes aux campagnes les plus reculées, et ramèneront plus de 160000 photograpies en noir et blanc, conservées depuis 1944 par la Bibliothèque du Congrès. Les auteurs ont choisi, parmi cette énorme documentation, une formidable et émouvante réunion de 470 photographies, dont de nombreuses n'avaient jamais été publiées, signées Dorothea LANGE, Ben SHAHN, Walker EVANS, Carl MYDANS, Theodor JUNG, Arthur ROTHSTEIN (1935-1937); Edwin et Louise ROSSKAM, Marion POST WOLCOTT, Jack DELANO, John VACHON, Russell LEE (1937-1942) et Marjory COLLINS, John COLLIER JR, Gordon PARKS et Esther BUBLEY (1942-1943). Chacun des seize photographes fait l'objet d'une courte présentation (1 page) suivie d'une série thématique (lieu, famille, métier,.) et de quelques-uns de ses travaux les plus connus. .Chronologies (17) .Bibliographie Cartonnage noir, jaquette illustrée (Montana, 1941, M.
