Carte Blanche is happy to now carry More American Photographs, a catalog from a recent show at CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts
As the United States slowly emerges from its most significant economic downturn since the Great Depression, the CCA Wattis Institute reexamined the well-known photography program of the Farm Security Administration, 1935-44, which included artists such as Walker Evans, Ben Shahn, Dorothea Lange and Marion Post Wolcott. For More American Photographs, twelve contemporary photographers will be commissioned to travel the United States, documenting its land and people. The resulting images were presented in an exhibition at the Wattis Institute, alongside a number of the original images by the FSA photographers, now compiled in a book.
