With its hard hitting text, and edited by FSA photographer Edwin Rosskam, this documentary photography book is a damning indictment of racism in America at the end of the Depression in the 1930s. Using Farm Security Administration photographs to illustrate the horrendous living and working conditions which many black Americans endured, this very strong and important book is an impassioned cry for social justice.

Includes images by FSA photographers such as:
Walker Evans
Dorothea Lange
Ben Shahn
Arthur Rothstein
Russell Lee
Jack Delano
Marion Post
John Vachon

This is a rare first edition copy of the uncommon 1947 UK edition with dust jacket.

See: Parr and Badger - The Photobook Vol 1 , pages 121-122

Condition:
Very good. Interior fresh, binding tight. This is a very clean and bright copy of this amazing book. Some edgewear to the spine and edges of the dust jacket. Please examine the listing photographs carefully.
