Ground : a reprise of photographs from the Farm Security Administration by Bill McDowell( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The photographs in 'Ground' are taken from an archive of 145,000 images from 1935-1943 for the Farm Security Administration (FSA), a New Deal agency ... within the Department of Agriculture ... The FSA photography division was run ... by Roy Stryker, who ... routinely damaged FSA negatives with a hole punch to prevent them from being printed. Some of the negatives he punched (referred to by the FSA as 'killed') were poor exposures or had been ruined already by faulty development ... while others had no technical flaws ... It is likely that Roy Stryker's ... only goal was to destroy undesirable negatives. But in his act of censorship Stryker wrested the photograph from its maker and unwittingly created a new picture ... Each photograph in 'Ground' is the result of 3 separate acts of picture-making : the original photographer's deliberate compositional and contextual decisions, Stryker's hole punch, and my re-contextualization ... By narrowing the scope of photographs to that of land and agriculture I've tried to construction an elemental relationship with the 1930s through our common reliance on the soil ... The photographers whose work is represented in this book are Paul Carter, Walker Evans, Theodor Jung, Russell Lee, Carl Mydans, Arthur Rothstein, Ben Shahn, John Vachon, and Marion Paul Wolcott
Rothstein's first assignment : a story about documentary truth( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Director Richard Robinson (The Beekeepers) retraces Rothstein's steps by interviewing descendants of the mountain people and beautifully weaving them together with a 1964 audio interview of Rothstein, archival newsreel footage, and clips from the specious documentary "Hollow Folk." During the course of his research, Robinson discovered evidence that Rothstein's images were not pure documentation. Instead, they were often staged for the camera. Digging beneath the official story, the film unearths an unsettling link between propaganda and documentary, and raises troubling questions about the photographer's complicity in the displacement of thousands of people for "progress." Robinson's most chilling discovery, though, is the forced institutionalization and sterilization of mountain residents as part of a eugenics program where over 8,000 individuals were sterilized. This fascinating film challenges the viewer to consider the complexity behind images that are viewed as historical truth. " -- Cinema Guild Web site
