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 were commissioned to travel the United States, documenting its land and people.
