Overview


Following on from the publication of the first six books featuring The Library of Congress’ internationally renowned collection of Farm Security Administration (FSA) and Office of War Information (OWI) photographs, Fields of Vision: The Photographs of Arthur Rothstein includes an introduction to the life of the photographer and 50 evocative images selected from his work.

Arthur Rothstein was born in New York in 1915. In the early 1930s he attended Columbia University, where he studied with Roy Stryker, who later hired him at the FSA. During his five years as an FSA photographer, Rothstein produced a gripping visual record of the country’s poor that included Virginia farmers, the Dust Bowl, cattle ranchers in Montana, and a tenant community in Gee’s Bend, Alabama. After World War II he joined Look magazine, serving as director of photography until the magazine ceased production in 1971. He died in 1985.
