THE FSA-OWI PHOTOGRAPHERS IN TEXAS, 1935-1943
By Robert L. Reid
This important, lavishly illustrated book focuses
on some of the most famous photographs ever
taken: the Farm Security Administration's
images of Dust Bowl Texans. But there is much
more to the FSA photographs than is common-
ly believed. From 1935 to 1943-the critical
years of the Great Depression and World War
II-the photographers in the federal govern-
(and later the
Office of War
cially Texas, in
all its vast com-
plexity. Some of the most famous names in doc-
umentary photography, including Dorothea
Lange, Russell Lee, and Arthur Rothstein, took
more than five thousand photographs in Texas,
more than in any other state.
