Long before the emergence of today’s digital age photography, a generation of talented artists emerged who are remembered for creating the most iconic and enduring photographs of all time. Their life’s works chronicled the events of the 20th century, the rise of automation, Western landscapes, the Great Depression, the New Deal programs of the 1930’s, the home front as well as overseas operations during World War II and beyond.
