Following the publication in September 2008 of the first three books featuring The Library of Congress' internationally renowned collection of Farm Security Administration and Office of War information photographs, the series will continue with images chosen from the works of John Vachon, Esther Bubley and Jack Delano. Providing a unique view of American life during the Great Depression and Second World War, each Fields of Vision volume includes an introduction to the life of the photographer and over 50 evocative images selected from their work. Transporting the viewer to American homes, farms and streets in the 1930s and 1940s, they also offer a glimpse of a new narrative and intimate style that was later to blossom on the pages of LOOK and 'LIFE' magazines. For many Americans of the pre-television age, the diversity and complexity of their country was defined by the lenses of these men and women.

John Vachon was born in Minnesota in 1914. He joined the FSA in 1936 as an assistant messenger and became an official photographer in 1941. Unlike the photographs of most of his FSA peers, many of Vachon's are distinctly urban. In 1947 he started shooting for Life and Look magazines, and remained as a staff photographer at Look until it closed in 1971. He died in 1975.
