Portrait of a Decade; Roy Stryker and the Development of Documentary Photography in the Thirties. I had checked this particular book out of the library on several occasions. I really wanted my own copy. This pictorial essay records a difficult time in our history with very ordinary people the focus. The depression era of the 30's and 40's was truly a test for this country. Perhaps people today would get a different view of their problems by refering to this book. 5 people found this helpful.

government photography project was headed by Roy E. Stryker, and engaged such photographers as Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Arthur Rothstein, Ben Shahn, Jack Delano, Marion Post Wolcott, Gordon Parks, John Vachon, and Carl Mydans. The project initially documented the Resettlement Administration's cash loans to individual farmers, and the agency's construction of planned suburban communities.

196 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs.

The book is in pretty good shape considering its age (my copy printed in 1977) and arrived from the seller as described and in the correct time frame. The contents though are why you want the book itself. Without being tedious or terribly biased, it provides a comprehensive overview of the FSA photography project from beginning to end. The background info on Stryker himself is interesting. The book is written from the viewpoint that it was not only a one man crusade to document the plight of rural America but a multi man/woman venture to expand the medium of documentary photography and journalism both academically and artistically. The book is a great addition to viewing the photos at the LOC's databank of FSA photographs. There is also some basic information about many of the photographers involved in the project. The photographs seem remarkably crisp given their age. I would recommend this book for anyone interested in these photos and their history along with a generalized history of this time period. It's an appropriate read for a junior high or high school level student on up.

After reading biographies of photographers who complained about Roy Stryker's heavy handed and stifling oversight I thought it about time I'd read something from Stryker's point of view. The result was a capitivating read about a part of the 1920's I knew little about. And, oh yes the photographs and background on trying to keep the project alive in the face of Washington politics was very interesting as was the perspective of the New Deal. Oh yes, it was well written, too.
