Southern Faces and Places: Examining Farm Security Administration Photographers of the 1930s
Presented by Tom Friedman
Thursday April 28, 2022, 1pm online
Join Tom Friedman for an examination of the photographs of Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, and Arthur Rothstein, master photographers who captured and shared the harrowing effects of the 1930s Depression upon the people of the American South. They were part of the largest documentary photography project ever undertaken by the U.S. government, and it yielded more than 80,000 photographs. Tom Friedman is a retired FAMU professor, and an artist.
