The Photographs of Jack Delano: The Library of Congress (Fields of Vision)
by Esmeralda Santiago
Publisher's Description
Providing a unique view of American life during the Great Depression and Second World War, each Fields of Vision volume includes an introduction to the life of a Farm Security Administration (FSA)/Office of War Information (OWI) photographer with 50 evocative images selected from their work held by the Library of Congress. Transporting the viewer to American homes, farms, and streets of the 1930s and 1940s, they offer a glimpse of a new narrative and intimate style that defined America.

Jack Delano was born in Russia in 1914 and moved with his family to Philadelphia at the age of nine. Hired by the FSA in 1940 as an itinerant photographer, he was assigned in 1941 to the Virgin islands and Puerto Rico. After service during World War II, he returned to Puerto Rico on a Guggenheim fellowship to produce a book documenting conditions there. He continued to live and work on the island until his death in 1997.
