Introducing America to Americans - The Farm Security Administration Project, 1935-1944


Introducing America to Americans

In 1939, the Farm Security Agency in America commissioned a group of photographers, including Dorothea Lange and Walker Evans, to capture the conditions in which farm workers and sharecroppers were living during The Great Depression. The purpose was to raise the public and political awareness of the hardship under which poor farmers, sharecroppers and immigrants were living. This collection of images now stands as a remarkable and important record of a traumatic period of American history.

We are proud to present a collection of Silver Gelatin Prints courtesy of The Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, Washington, USA.

The exhibition opens with a private view on Saturday 13th October, 6:30pm - 8pm and closes on November 17th.
