The Photographs of Esther Bubley: The Library of Congress (Fields of Vision)
by Melissa Fay Greene
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) and Office of War Information (OWI) photographer with 50 evocative images selected from their work in the Library of Congress's collection. 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.

Esther Bubley was born in Wisconsin in 1921 to Russian Jewish immigrants. Bubley was hired as a darkroom assistant at the OWI in 1942 but soon became a field photographer, recording US wartime life from a greyhound bus. After the war she worked for Life, Ladies' Home Journal, Look, McCall's and Harper's Bazaar, reporting from Europe, Central and South America, North Africa, Australia and the Philippines. She died in 1998.
