The Photographs of Ben Shahn: The Library of Congress (Fields of Vision #7) (Paperback)
Part of a completely new photography series, featuring The Library of Congress' internationally renowned collection of Farm Security Administration (FSA) and Office of War Information (OWI) photographs, this title provides a unique view of American life during the Great Depression and Second World War. Fields of Vision: The Photographs of Ben Shahn features an introduction to his work by Timothy Egan and 50 striking images. Trained as an artist and designer, and best known as a painter and illustrator, Shahn's primary interest was in people rather than landscapes, the authentic faces of rural America.
