Documenting the Face of America: Roy Stryker and the FSA/OWI Photographers

Documenting the Face of America: Roy Stryker and the FSA/OWI Photographers brings to life the remarkable stories behind the legendary group of New Deal-sponsored photographers who traversed the country in the 1930s and early 1940s, capturing the face of Depression-era America. The film explores the personal vision and the struggles experienced by photographers Gordon Parks, Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, Walker Evans, Marion Post Wolcott and Jack Delano, who created some of the most iconic images in history. This unlikely group of photographers and artists was brought together by a fiery prairie populist and government bureaucrat named Roy Stryker. Julian Bond narrates.
