The photographs in the Farm Security Administration / Office of War Information Photograph Collection form an extensive pictorial record of American life between 1935 and 1944. This U.S. government photography project was headed for most of its existence by Roy E. Stryker, and Initially created as the Resettlement Administration (RA) in 1935 as part of the New Deal in the United States. The FSA is famous for its small but highly influential photography program, 1935–44, that portrayed the challenges of rural poverty.

RECOMMENDED FOR ARTBOOK COLLECTORS : 'Let Us Now Praise Famous Men' - James Agee & Walker Evans
In the summer of 1936, James Agee and Walker Evans set out on assignment for Fortune magazine to explore the daily lives of sharecroppers in the South. Their journey would prove an extraordinary collaboration and a watershed literary event when, in 1941, Let Us Now Praise Famous Men was first published to enormous critical acclaim. This unsparing record of place, of the people who shaped the land and the rhythm of their lives, is intensely moving and unrelentingly honest, and today—recognized by the New York Public Library as one of the most influential books of the twentieth century—it stands as a poetic tract of its time. With an elegant new design as well as a sixty-four-page photographic prologue featuring archival reproductions of Evans's classic images, this historic edition offers readers a window into a remarkable slice of American history.
