About this title

Synopsis:

The documentary style that dominates American photography had its origins in the social reform publicity campaigns of the turn of the century. This book traces the history of this genre and its main participants, including Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn, and Russell Lee.

Review:

'Whether one agrees or not with the main thrust of Stange's argument, in its detailed and insightful discussion of the relationship between reform ideology and images, between social imagery and photojournalism, between real and ideal, Symbols of Ideal Life is an important contribution to our understanding of the evolution of the documentary style in photography.' Art Journal
