Documenting The Face Of America

Episode 1 of 1

DOCUMENTING THE FACE OF AMERICA tells the inspirational "behind the lens" stories from some of the most celebrated photographers in history. Narrated by Julian Bond, the program highlights the forgotten collective pieces of our past. This story celebrates the courage and vision of legendary photographers and artists such as Dorothea Lange, Walker Evans, Gordon Parks, Marion Post Wolcott, Russell Lee and others who worked with the U.S. government under the unorthodox leadership of Roy Stryker from 1935 to 1943. Together they changed the course of photography, but more important, changed history, as Americans saw what life was like across the nation for the first time -- from North to South, from East to West, for rich and poor and for black and white.
