A dramatic story of how an unlikely group worked together for social change and ended up creating one of the most astonishing portraits of America ever compiled. The Farm Security Administration /Office of War Information photographic archive chronicled the heartbreak of the Dust Bowl era through the forced relocation of Japanese-Americans at the outset of WWII. This vast collection of photographs remains hauntingly relevant to our lives today.

Gret History Reference--glad to have it!

Comments about PBS Documenting the Face of America: Roy Stryker and the FSA/OWI Photographers DVD:

Excellent presentation of conditions in the Depression. More (baby boomers) people should become acquainted with this history.

Question: Why is the voice out of sync with the people speaking? Doesn't impair the content, but is bothersome to me.

Our Future is a Reflection of our Past

Comments about PBS Documenting the Face of America: Roy Stryker and the FSA/OWI Photographers DVD:

They say history is the best teacher...this proves it. How would the political pundits treat Roy Styker and crew today? What kind of social change would they try to effect? The parallels are easy to see and the photograhpy ain't bad either.

How hard it was and is to tell the truth

By BobH

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Documenting the Face of America: Roy Stryker and the FSA/OWI Photographers DVD:

Not only are the photographs among the best ever made, the story of how they came to be left me in awe. All the forces that strive in our time to deprive people of their humanity were in play when these miraculous photos were taken. Roy Stryker, the previously unsung hero of this saga, left his own monument in commissioning these photos and in their preservation.
