part five: Other Photographers of the FSA

By looking at the images of Lange, Lee, and Rothstein you will notice the "future-oriented" nature of their images that I mentioned earlier, in part three:The Farm Security Administration when discussing the type of image that the FSA wanted to see, to prove that its relief programs were working.

These photographs are more typical, more "cliche"(if you will). You should be able to identify the presence of an author in these images; the photographer's subjective interpretation should be apparent, whereas in Evans' images it is not--he is unique because he has abandoned the "cliche."
