Itinerant Photographer: Corpus Christi, 1934
by Sybil Miller
Publisher's Description
In February of 1934 a lone itinerant photographer visited Corpus Christi, Texas. He produced a wealth of photographs, most of which are portraits of people in their working environments. Over 500 of these were re-discovered by Sybil Miller in the photography archive at the Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas in Austin. In these photographs, we find a picture of life in the thirties that is markedly different from that shown by the Farm Security Administration's documentary project. Miller gives us an historical overview of the genre of itinerant photography and analyzes this significant body of work in detail.
