Screening of the Documentary Film
Stryker's America: Photographing the Great Depression
A Film by Laurence L. Levin and Justin Schauble
Stryker’s America tells the story of how Roy E. Stryker, a low-level federal bureaucrat with integrity and vision, managed a massive New Deal project to document the Great Depression. Stryker lead the Historical Division of the Farm Security Administration from 1935 to 1943. The photos in this collection—nearly 200,000 by both established and aspiring photographers, including Dorothea Lange, Gordon Parks, Arthur Rothstein, Edwin Rosskam and many others—became the defining statement of the era. Narrated by Beverly Brannan, curator of photography at the Library of Congress; Dr. Alan Fern, retired director of the National Portrait Gallery; and Peter Kuznick, professor of history at American University.

This major retrospective examines the work of Louise Rosskam (1910-2003), an elusive pioneer of the “golden age” of American documentary photography. It features her poignant photographs of a Southwest, Washington, D.C. neighborhood before its destruction for urban renewal projects. It highlights her compelling images of Puerto Rico, as it developed from an impoverished U.S. possession to an industrialized commonwealth whose political status remains a contested issue. Guest curated by Laura Katzman and Beverly W. Brannan.
