Picturing Texas: The FSA-OWI Photographers in Texas 1935-1943 is an important, lavishly illustrated book focusing on some of the most famous photographs ever taken: the Farm Security Administration's images of Dust Bowl Texans. But there is much more to the FSA photographs than is commonly believed. From 1935 to 1943 the photographs in the federal government's Farm Security Administration documented America, especially Texas, in all its vast complexity. Some of the most famous names in documentary photography including Dorothea Lange, Russell Lee, and Arthur Rothstein, took more than five thousand photographs in Texas, more than any other state. In addition to the well known pictures of rural poverty and the Dust Bowl, these remarkable artists captured a rich panorama of everyday life in Texas' rural areas, small towns, and big cities. By the time they were done, there were few areas and aspects of Texas left undocumented. Readers will be moved by the vast array of images of town meetings and rodeos, down-and-out farmers and prosperous businessmen, beer joints and factories, black and brown and white.
